All vehicles entering the Worimi Conservation Lands must be registered and display a valid Worimi Conservation Lands beach vehicle permit. The Worimi Conservation Lands (WCL) is considered a road related area and road rules apply under Road Transport (General) Act 2005.
If your planning on visiting the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes all vehicles need to be road registered or have conditional registration specifically for the Recreation Vehicle Area (RVA) on Stockton Bight. Motorbikes and vehicles with road registration from interstate are permitted to access the beach, and must display a current registration label and registration plate. The PDF below outlines the rules of driving safely on the dunes.
There are two types of permits available:
1. Beach Vehicle Permits 2. Recreational Vehicle Area Permits
• Annual $30 • NSW Pensioner Concession $15 • 3-Day $10
The Worimi Conservation Lands are located in the Port Stephens area, north of Newcastle. Vehicle access is available for 4WDs.
There are two entrances to the WCL:
- via Lavis Lane at Williamtown
- via Gan Gan Road at Anna Bay
Four wheel driving is a very popular activity, and the entrances can get busy during the holidays.
Fines will apply for vehicles without permits. You can purchase your permit from the Visitor Information Centre.
