In Tasmania's west, a series of giant dunes forms a vast expanse of sand that reaches several kilometres inland and extends 15 kilometres along the coast.
Reaching heights of around 30 m, the Henty Sand Dunes form a desert amid the rainforests of Tasmania's West Coast.
The dunes were formed by the Roaring Forties, an uninterrupted wind current that blows from South America, gaining speed all the way to Tasmania.
From the picnic area it's an easy 1.5 hr return walk through the dunes to Ocean Beach, Tasmania's longest beach.
For the adventurous, try tobogganing down the dunes. Toboggans are available for hire from select businesses in Strahan - but you'll need to climb back up the dunes yourself.
There is a shaded picnic area but no water or toilet facilities.
The dunes are 14 km north of Strahan on the road to Zeehan.
