Another of our favorite spots. The sand dunes at Bethells are perfect for adventurous teens, younger families (4-5 year old kids love this spot) and anyone who loves lake swims, dune runs, slides, rolls, etc.
In winter time there is a windy river with quicksand (don't worry - it's safe) to play in. And massive (100 ft+) dunes to scale down in whatever way seems best to you. Amazing photos. In summer time, we finish at the beautiful Lake Wainamu for a swim, leap off the wharf like crazy people and generally have a giant laugh.
For fun and games, it is hard to go past Bethells dunes!
