First responder day families join us for an adventure on the largest moving sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere! Travel across the magnificent sand dunes in a purpose-built 4WD vehicles. We will then have up to two hours of sandboarding fun! You can sit or slide, or stand and surf. After the sandboarding adventures, enjoy a group lunch by the beach in a shaded picnic area with tables and chairs so you can relax and enjoy the views!

This Fortem wellbeing activity is a great way to spend time with your family or kinship group, be active, challenge yourself and develop close family bonds. It’s also great to connect and socialise with other local first responder families. Developing close relationships and socialising with friends, family and others, is important to build your mental fitness and boost your wellbeing. Connecting to nature and spending time outdoors is associated with greater levels of happiness.

This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (check eligibility here). Suitable for all ages and abilities. Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly.
