After a 20 minute drive along beautiful Stockton Beach, you will find the hidden village of “Tin City” emerging out of the sand dunes like a mirage!!
Tin City began in the early 1900’s when 2 tin shacks were built for shipwreck survivors. During the great depression of the 1930’s, Tin City grew to over 36 huts. Eleven of these huts still stand today. Tin City is the last legal squatter settlement in Australia! Learn more about this fascinating “City” amid the sand dunes on our Tin City Safari!
In addition, we will explore the Aboriginal as well as the military history of the area, and the ecosystem and history of the dunes. If tides permit we will also dig for “Pippis” along the water line. Other activities on this tour include driving over the massive sand dunes on our way to the sandboarding area, where you can take on the thrill of sandboarding. A truly unique and memorable experience !
