In a world of big things, there are few as striking and as monumental as the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes in the Worimi Conservation Lands at Anna Bay in Port Stephens.
From fun adventure to ancient heritage, the Worimi Conservation Lands at Anna Bay offers amazing experiences.
The beautiful sandscape is forever changing. Created thousands of years ago, the largest moving coastal dunes in the Southern Hemisphere are spectacular. The Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, in the Worimi Conservation Lands, cover 4,200 hectares, 1,800 of which are forest, as well as 32kms of the longest moving sand dunes in the southern hemisphere. These truly awe-inspiring dunes reach heights of over 30 metres with slopes of up to 60 degrees to form a majestic landscape are ideal for sand-boarding, an exciting activity all year.
The shifting sands cover the ancient Aboriginal cultural sites from time to time. This is why you must only drive or ride in the designated areas. The most visible ancient cultural sites are the middens, which contain shell deposits and tool-making artefacts. There are also campsites and burial sites.
Explore the giant Stockton Bight sand dunes and enjoy four-wheel driving along NSW’s longest beach (with a permit). Beach and dune driving in your own 4WD is popular way to enjoy the area at your own pace. You’ll need to buy a special beach permit before steering your way onto the sandy stretch at either Lavis Lane in the south or Gan Gan Road in the north. Bring a fishing rod - the beach fishing is excellent.
