兰斯林是澳大利亚首屈一指的滑沙胜地,距珀斯市中心仅90分钟路程。 在兰斯林滑沙经济实惠,滑沙板的租金低至 12.50 元,而且乐趣无穷。那么,需要做些什么呢? 首先,前往小镇 首先,前往小镇。从珀斯市中心驱车仅需90分钟。往北走到米切尔高速公路的尽头,然后在赫斯特大街右转,再左转到旺内鲁路。最终转进印度洋公路,因此请保持向北前行,直至到达可见清楚标识的兰斯林出口。转至朝向海岸,并根据这些视频指示抵达沙丘。. 你需要准备好滑沙板和一些蜡,并且为了防止您抵达时滑沙板已被预订一空,您应该在此预订您的滑沙板(仅 12.50 元起)领取了预订的滑沙板后,您即可出发去沙丘。在按照下图或视频指示抵达后,您可把标准的二轮驱动车辆停靠在沙丘底部的硬石头上。 但是,大多数租车公司禁止您把他们的二轮驱动车辆开到公路之外,所以请注意。如果想深入到非公路区域,那么您绝对需要一台四轮驱动的车辆。如果您是驾驶四轮驱动车辆的新手,那么您还需要非常小心,因为沙丘是很危险的(是的,发生过死亡事件)。 沙丘地带非常广阔,而且实际上受到3个不同部门的监管。从法律的角度来说,您只能使用经授权的非公路路段,其大致包括了沙丘(南北方向上)的中间部分。入口处有指示可使用区域的路标,请在进入时查询一下。但是请注意,沙丘上很少有指示边界所在之处的栅栏或路标,所以请谨慎行事。 如果您没有信心驾驶二轮驱动车辆进入非公路区域,只需将其停放在 Bootoo 街上,然后步行进入即可。您还可以把车停靠在距离车道左侧约20米处的空地上,如上图所示。步行约300米,穿过柔软的沙地和坚硬的石头。 沙丘区域可以免费进入 沙丘区域可以免费进入。只有一个入口点(如上图所示),入口处没有门,沙丘全年无休,24小时全天候开放(但是在日落至上午8点之间,希望您能将噪音保持在最低限度,以免打扰居住在沙丘附近的居民)。 有两种不同类型的滑沙板供您租用,站立式的和坐式的。如果您的平衡感较好,比如会滑滑板或是滑雪板,那么可以尝试站立式的,否则大多数人更青睐坐式的滑沙板。 至于该怎么穿衣服?这一点取决于您自己 至于该怎么穿衣服?这一点取决于您自己。如果风很大,或是您在滑沙时总是跌倒,您的衣服里可能最后会有很多沙子。您可能需要带上护目镜来防止眼睛受到沙子的刺激,而且您要爬到沙丘顶部才能往下滑,因此您需要耗费大量的体力往回攀爬。 另外请注意,沙丘上没有任何公共设施,如洗手间/商店等等。因此在穿过小镇的路上请你多留心这一点,并祝您尽情享受最棒的一天! ×… Read More
