Swimming at Red Rock


Red Rock is a coastal village to the north of Woolgoolga, the smallish Corindi River enters the Pacific Ocean here. When the tide is coming in Red Rockites and visitors participate in a time honoured aquatic ritual of 'going for a float'.


You go to the river mouth with your noodle( a tube like flotation device), jump in and drift up with the clear blue water to Ford Park, get out, walk back to the river mouth, jump in and do it all over again.
A big word of warning - never do it on the outgoing tide unless you want to go to New Zealand!

  1. I am surprised that with all this rain, that Red Rock community was not under water!!

  5. Is it a good idea to go there fishing this month?
    We'll hire a car and reach Bribie Island and head to various places from there over the weekend.
