Red Rock

Red Rock is a sleepy little village which is popular with those enjoying swimming, boating, kayaking and wilderness nature. At 40 kilometres from Coffs Harbour, Red Rock is an easy half-hour drive from the city, or 10 minutes from Woolgoolga.

The quiet village is nestled on the estuary of the pristine Corindi River. The recreation area near the mouth of the river is an idyllic, sheltered location to spend a day while enjoying sensational views up and down the river. It features a children’s playground, benches, shaded picnic tables, plenty of grassy areas and trees to laze under, an amenities block and a boat ramp. Red Rock is named after the stunning red rock formations at the mouth and headland of the estuary.

Accommodation options include holiday houses and Red Rock Holiday Park which has plenty of camping sites, safari tents and cabins.  There is bowling club with a Chinese restaurant and general store where you can buy take-away food and drinks.

Red Rock

What's in a name?

A beautiful place to visit for a weekend or week away on long secluded beaches and with National Park close by.

Where did the name Red Rock come from?   There are two stories here to tell. The headland is the recorded sight of a massacre of Gumbaynngir indigenous people which took place at Blackadders Creek when police raided the settlement, shooting local Aboriginals and chasing them to Red Rock. The name comes as a result of the river waters being stained with blood. The other reason is that the headland has a unique formation which is made up of red coloured rock.
