Perry Sandhills

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 400 acres of continuously shifting sand dunes.

Skeleton remains of giant mega-fauna (kangaroos, lions, emus and wombats) have been found there. Aboriginal tribes used this area to camp and hunt. Evidence of this is still being uncovered as the sands drift.


. Now, the area is utilised as backdrop for many films, T.V. shows and ads, theatre/music presentations
