Lancelin Sand Dunes is unique and amazing place, its a very popular spot for photography. They extend over a wide area and indeed you could easily become geographically disoriented (Lost). Find a quite spot of your own and marvel at the views out over the ocean and Lancelin Island or join all the other who come to sand bike of 4 x 4 or sand board. You can hire sand-boards from the Have-A-Chat shop on Gingin Road.

The reflection of the white sand make me cant open my eyes. Weather is too good when i visited there and the scenery is superb! Do remember to bring your sun shade and sun screen when visit there. One best thing to do there is, get a cold beer and walk around the dunes. Nicely done.

Brought some overseas visitors to the dunes
We stopped at “have a chat” general store and hired a sandboard.
Definitely suggest taking sunnies as it can be quite bright!
And a towel to wipe away all the fine sand

Quite a sight (and experience), just a stone throw from the beach!

For those who are energetic enough, sand boards can be rented for a 2-hour duration on the spot. While it is fun to ride down the sandy slopes (not as much fun as snowboarding I reckon), carrying the board (or boards for the younger members of the family) back up the slopes in the sun (and gusty wind) can be fairly physically demanding.

Even if one opted not to play, just walking up the sandy slopes and admire the grandeur of the dunes (on the side facing away from the sea) is an experience in itself.

Arriving at the dunes is quite a site! Almost looks like you are on a different planet.
We hired 2 sandboards from "Have a Chat" general store... one was a stand up board and the other was a sitting one.The lady at the store was very friendly but the 'sitting' board did not slide at all and was very disappointing after climbing up the steep slopes repeatedly to try again. The 'standing' sandboard worked well and we had a great time using this board. I noticed a bus load of tourists who all had the sitting boards from "Have a Chat" store and none of their boards were sliding either.

It was very windy so I recommend bringing a jacket, the sand gets EVERYWHERE so wear glasses or goggles and maybe even a scarf around your nose and mouth!

Overall we had a great time and would definitely do it again if in the area. It's quite tiring climbing up so 2 hours should be plenty of time.

First time trying out sandboarding! The whole experience was fun and thrilling! 2 hours felt like just the blink of an eye, but I guess we wasted more time on climbing back up. It was quite tiring too given that the sand board was quite heavy and we gotta climb the steep sand dune.

A must go place that just around 1-2 hours drive from Perth. Sand board is available for rent at the sand dunes (AUD10 per piece). We noticed that there are broken glass pieces on the sands (not just once but few other areas too). please be careful to avoid any injury.

Wanagarren Reserve - We drove back along the highway from the Lancelin Sand Dunes which are just stunning. They are powdery and white and feel so cool underfoot. They are like something from the desert but better because of their whiteness. We drove for about 4km to Wanagarren rest area where we stayed the night as it was too dark to continue to drive as there were roos and emus all over the place. We were only 10km from the Pinnacles at Cervantes, so it is close enough to get there early in the morning. We saw the sunrise from Wanagarran Nature Reserve this morning – that’s the second time, we stayed over in our RV at this location, and it never gets boring. The grass trees or black boys as they used to be called are outstanding – in their hundreds – in the early morning light.

This was voted the highlight of our 2 week journey sound south west WA by our 14 year old. Massive dunes, you hire boards from some small businesses near the dunes ( we paid $10 per board) and then wear your self out sliding down the dune, the scrambling up them again to repeat the process ; awesome fun
Be aware the area is totally undeveloped; no cafes/ food, no toilets, and at your own risk driving across the rocks to get to were the dunes are; but it’s worth it!!

Booking a board online is $12, but when we reached the dunes, it is just $10. For the 3 of us, we booked 1 board and we had a very fun time sandboarding down the dunes. We were recommended to play at a different part of the dunes because there were no rocks and gentler slope. The board was heavy especially when you need to carry up the slope - this could be a very good exercise. After a few rounds, we were just feeling short of breath all the time. On the other side of the gentle slope, there was a steep slope, we tried and it was more sliding down. We were done, the wheel of our car got stuck in the sand, some guys managed to help us free our car. We saw a few cars got stuck as well while leaving. Must try activity near Perth.
