Fast-paced trip exploring the dunes & beaches. Suitable for ‘sand newbies’, as long as you have 'difficult' trip experience. Full day on relatively easy tracks and beaches, with the occasional tougher track for thrown in. Air-down at the Tourist Info Centre before heading south towards Carpenter’s Rocks on as many beaches as we can, but ‘retreating’ back into the dunes if the going gets too soft. We’ll stop in the dunes for morning tea and lunch so bring drinks and snacks. The plan is to visit the windfarm look-out and hit the big dunes and drop-offs. Beach driving tips: low tyre pressures and forward momentum is the key, leave a decent gap for a good run up at the dunes and beach exits. If you get bogged, stop and wait for help. Dogs are not allowed in the national park.
We acknowledge and respect Victorian Traditional Owners as the original custodians of Victoria’s land and waters, their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past, present and emerging, whose knowledge and wisdom has ensured the continuation of culture and traditional practices.
