1/ Quad Biking through the Stockton Sand Dunes is one of the best adrenaline activities that you can do around Port Stephens and the Hunter region! The Stockton Sand Dunes are the largest moving sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere and they extend for 32km behind Stockton and Birubi Beaches. Halfway along, off Nelson Bay Road, you will find the entrance to Quad Bike King, who take daily tours out to the sand dunes to speed through the sand and take on the sand hills! This is a must-do for all adrenaline junkies! See here for full details.

2/ Sand Boarding is another fun, adrenaline-filled activity that you can do on the Stockton Sand Dunes. You can access these activities from Birubi Beach, in Anna Bay. Hop on a 4WD bus and get taken up to the highest dunes on the day. Speed down the dunes on a board and feel the wind in your face - stand up if you dare! Check out the websites for Sand Dune Safaris and 4WD Tours R Us for more details.

3/ Go-Karting is an exciting sport that is a fun activity for the whole family. Go Karts Go at Bobs Farm is the only go-karting venue in the area, so make sure you book in early during the school holidays. It is a 350 metre winding track with 9 turns and a whole lot of fun! If you have a competitive side, then this adrenaline activity is for you. See here for details.

If you have kids that feel the need the speed, then also check out Toboggan Hill adventure park on the road into Nelson Bay. This rustic family favourite has the downhill toboggans as well as indoor rock climbing and other fun adventures for young children. Also just in front of the adventure park is Tomaree Aquatic Centre, which has a fast waterslide every weekend in summer and the school holidays.

Adrenaline junkies unite in Port Stephens - big and small!
