Fast-paced trip exploring the dunes and beaches. Suitable for ‘sand newbies’, as long as you have 'difficult' experience. Full day on relatively easy dune tracks and beaches, with the occasional tougher track thrown in. Air-down behind the Southern Ocean Caravan Park (Foster St) before heading north towards Robe on as many beaches as we can, but heading 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. We’ll visit the new spot near Nora Creina Bay for lunch (BYO supplies) and a paddle in the warm shallow waters. From Nora Creina we’ll head north into Little Dip Conservation Park ending up in Robe. Air-up in Robe and make your own way back to Beachport on the bitumen.
Beach driving tips: low tyre pressures and forward momentum is the key, leave a decent gap so you can get a good run up at the dunes and beach exits. If you get bogged, stop and wait for help.
According to the parks website, dogs are not permitted on the beach and national parks.
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.
