  • We had an amazing fat bike tour! Our tour guide, Connor was very knowledgeable and the bikes gave us the chance to really experience the beauty of KI. Fat bike tours are definitely recommended!  more »
  • We've been here twice now - both times we shared one toboggan between my husband, myself & our daughter. To be honest, that was to allow time to rest between walks back up the sand dune! The slides do...  more »
  • White sand dunes. From the parking lot entrances very difficult. Take off your shoes to enjoy to have a cardboard, unsaid.

  • The boards are bit expensive so I recommend sharing 1 between two. Be careful not to go on to hot days it's exhausting to climb the dunes and your feet will burn. (Easier to go bare foot) the sliding down the dunes is amazing and great fun.
  • Beautiful place. First time I went here it was 45°C and the sand was so hot it was burning our feet and our phones stopped working! This time round, it was a mild low 20s. It takes a lot of effort to get to the top of the dunes but once you're there, serenity. The white sand in contrast with the blue sky makes such a beautiful contrast. This site is free but to go sand surfing will cost you $37 and additional $10 for a helmet which you don't really need, they're really milking it here. Or you can skip the fomo and just enjoy the desert for what it is.
  • Great way for kids to burn some energy. We speny 90 min running up dunes and sliding back down.
  • Little Sahara, well it was scorching enough to be on par with it's bigger brother. Really good place to experience a mouthful of sand I've you're a sandboarding novice.
  • Fun visit to a desert on Kangaroo Island. If you are thinking of renting a sandboard or sled, go for the sled. Falling can be a bit painful off of a sandboard, so if you decide to go that way, grab a helmet too. The sleds are easier to deal with and still just as fun to ride down the slope. It is quite expensive to rent though. I wish it was just a bit cheaper.
