Little Sahara sand dunes are an incredible white sand dune system that covers over two square kilometres on Kangaroo Island, Australia. The Little Sahara dunes are naturally occurring along the coast with the highest peaks reaching 70 meters above sea level.
There is some vegetation growing in the sand which is good because it helps to stabilize the dunes and prevents them from moving in the wind. I like seeing the vegetation because it makes for more interesting photos and it gives a beachy feeling to the dunes.
The most popular activities in Little Sahara are sandboarding and tobogganing. Both sand boards and toboggans can be rented at the dunes so it is easy to try it out and enjoy the dunes from a different perspective.
Sandboarding takes a little practice to get the knack but tobogganing is a blast even if you have never tried it before.
Warning: if you do decide to try these out, it is impossible to stay clean. The sand has a way of getting everywhere!
The views alone are spectacular even if you aren’t interested in spending the day playing in the sand. Little Sahara is close to Seal Bay where you have the chance to get up close and personal with the resident Australian Sea Lions that live on the island. They will actually let you get within a few feet of them if you approach slowly.
