4x4 off road, quad bike ridding, dirt bike ridding, surfing, kite surfing, spend the day at the beach and sand boarding.
Things to do in Lancelin:
4x4 off road on the sand dunes is a lot of fun, there is a huge area to explore which changes every day. I've recently been there twice 2 weeks apart and the dunes had shifted and changed shape very significantly, so every time you visit it will be a new experience due to the winds.
For 4wd only there are a few tracks north of the sand dunes which lead to different beach areas which are great for fishing, relaxing or even just spending the day doing whatever you like at the beach.
