A highlight of this exciting tour of the beautiful Stockton dunes is Tin City. This hidden outpost had its origins over a century ago when huts were built for shipwreck survivors, then swelled to become a small village during the Depression era. Emerging from the dunes like a mirage, some weathered tin huts still stand today. It’s a popular spot for film and photography, so be sure to bring your camera.

Together with your guides from Sand Dune Safaris, you'll also explore sites of the dunes’ first inhabitants, the Worimi people, who’ve lived here for well over 40,000 years. Learn how to hunt for pippis on the beach before exploring the massive dunes by 4WD. For an extra thrill, you can even try sand boarding on the dunes.

Sand Dune Safaris is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
