You can drive in the Portland dunes - but you have to join the Portland Buggy Club. Beachport / Robe for me - but not local - good 5 hr drive - but great place and there is proabably 3-4 days of different drives you could do

Robe and Beachport are really an extended weekend trip. Day there, day to enjoy and a day back....
If you have a windy day then it may be a day more. It really is a Summer trip as it's fairly ordinary any other time.
The lakes at the back of Robe are a teriffic fishing spot. Hooked the biggest Bream of my life there. Broke my rod, but he still came in.
You have to break the trip at Portland and ride the Portland Tram.....

Default Portland

Portland dunes are fantastic, i spent a weekend down there in feb this year, was hot and windy but really made no difference. Heaps of camping areas and when you book they give you a map of how to get there and can also supply the flag needed for your vehicle. The dunes are approx 20kms from Portland. There is plenty to explore, can drive for hours and not get to the end of the park. Have plenty of photos too if intersted.

Robe is good as a long weekend, or longer if you take it real easy and have lots of cuppas. Start south of Mt Gambier, end up near where the Murray hits the sea. Personally, I like getting myself caught by the tide so I have to hit the dunes for real and just camp in a hollow bit. "But Mr park ranger, what else could I do?".

Don't run over the little walking birds. They're endangered.
And the penguins wandering on the beach, don't hit them either. They squeek terribly when you squash them.
And don't hit a seal. They like hanging out right in the middle of the ROAD(beach) too. No respect for drivers!
And look out for Blue Whales. They live off that coastline.
