Perry Sandhills - Photo by Shubham

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, and are a unique land formation of 333 hectares of continuously shifting sand dunes. Located in the sand dunes is a magnificent Murray River Red Gum Tree, which is over 500 years old. Over time, the sand has completely covered the trunk of the tree (perhaps 15’ to 20’), so that you are able to stand in the canopy of this age-old tree. From the top of the dunes you get a great view of this remarkable area, only 5km from the confluence of Australia’s two greatest rivers, the Murray & Darling, yet you could be in the Sahara desert.
