  • Great short hike, pretty easy most of the way but the last bit was a little challenging going up the sand, but once past the climb what a perfect place to see! I definitely recommend a visit it isn’t ...  more »
  • Definitely worth an hours detour. You walk 20 mins from Stockyards car park just inside nat park (turn immediately right as you pass ranger station). Like something from a movie once you get up there....  more »

  • A vast, yet absolutely stunning location. Signs clearly marked from Stockyard Campsite and repeated a few times along the entire track. The walk is about 2km long, with the last couple of hundred metres being the hardest on the trail as the path begins to turn into the sand dune itself, making the track both soft and steep. The Big Drift is just beautiful, however, bring sunscreen and possibly a windproof jacket as the environment is quite harsh. The best times would be the early hours & the final hours of the day. While it avoids the harsh sun in the middle of the day, the sand has a fine tint to it.
  • We loved this spot even though it’s just endless sand dunes. But as a photo spot with few others it’s definitely worth the 30mins walk, starting at Stockyard Campsite near the park entrance. You have to follow the signposts to the northern flank of Big Drift. It’s easy to get lost in Big Drift so be careful to mark your path to find the track out again. There is no beach access from Big Drift.
