According to geologists, the Perry Sandhills originated after an ice age (40,000 years ago) and are formed by wind erosion over thousands of years. The dunes are located just outside of Wentworth (6km from PO), and are a unique land formation of 333 hectares (822 acres) of continuously shifting sand dunes.
The sandhills were used as a bombing range during WWII. Now, the area is utilised as backdrop for many films, T.V. shows and advertisements.
Be sure to investigate the awesome red sandhills as they are a perfect location for a family picnic or outing.
