Stockton Beach

Looking out towards the Stockton beach sand dunes over some ominous deep dark water. Located to the north of the Hunter River the beach has an interesting history and has been the site of numerous shipwrecks and aircraft crash sites. In some areas it is as much as 1 km (0.6 mi) wide and has sand dunes over 30 metres (98 ft) high with slopes up to 60 degrees. Each year the dunes move north by approximately 4 m (13 ft) and are considered the largest continuous mobile sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. Shot taken from a sailboat.
