. Red Rock is a lovely quiet village in a very picturesque setting. There are two beaches, the 'Big Beach' with a bit of a surf for the more adventurous or the'Little Beach' with a pool at low tide for the little ones and lovely shaded spots protected from southerlies to enjoy and relax. The beaches are patrolled at weekends and in school holidays (observe signs at beach)
The estuary is great for kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, swimming.....
If fishing is your passion you can choose from fishing off the rocks at the headland, fishing on the beach, along the broad walk in the river or from a boat in the estuary or the ocean.
Along the river is a park with a children's playground, electric BBQs and tables and a great local store for essentials and great take-aways. Kayak hire etc. is also available from the shop.
Red Rock is a bird watcher's dream with a lot of rare birds to be spotted along the river or in the heath. In spring the flowers in the heath are worthwhile a visit.
From July to November the headland is a great place for whale watching.
There is a bowling green and tennis courts. The bowling club has a bar and a chinese restaurant for those who want to eat out. A bit further away (6km's) is the Amble Inn in Corindi. A pub with a great atmosphere and a very good restaurant. The Amble Inn has a courtesy bus that services Red Rock.
To the north Red Rock adjoins Yuraygir National Park with beautiful pristine beaches and rock pools.
