Lancelin Dunes- Western Australia

Lancelin is small sea side town about 130km North of Perth,famous for it’s sand dunes, which are mainly used for off roading activities.

The area was initially a holiday camping place through the 1940s and holiday shacks were probably built in the area during this time but interest in the area grew as it was designated as a possible port to be utilised by the crayfish, or lobster fishery.

The town has a permanent population of over 600, and swells to 2,500 during the peak holiday period around Christmas - New Year.

Kitesurfing and windsurfing are popular in the ocean off Lancelin, as are sandboarding and 4-wheel driving on the beaches and in the dunes behind the town.

 

Lancelin è una piccola cttà costiera a circa 130 KM da Perth, famosa per l sue dune di sabbia bianca che sono la principale destinazione di molte attività “Off-road”.

Fin dal 1940 tutta l’area fu utilizzata come enorme campeggio per le vacanze ma in seguito l’interesse crebbe quando fu designata come un possibile porto utilizzabile dai pescatori di granhi e di aragoste.

La cittadina ha una popolazione di 600 abitanti che diventano 2500 durante le vacanze tra Natale e Capodanno.

Il kite e l’windsurf sono attività molto popolari nelle acque oceaniche di Lancelin come le escursioni in 4x4 sulle spiagge e sulle dune (Sic!) intorno alla cittadina.
