Sand tobogganing sees the participants propelling themselves down a sand dune on a specially made sand board with a waxed bottom.
The waxed bottom is used to provide less friction so the board propels down the sand hill giving the participant the thrill of a lifetime. You can sit on the board, lie down face first or for the real adventurous at heart, go backwards.
There are a number of places where you can experience sand tobogganing on South Stradbroke, and the best sand dunes are in close proximity to McLarens Landing.
