Trail information

Solitary Islands Coastal Walk – Red Rock to Woolgoolga

Red Rock is named for the ancient jasper rock.  Take a moment to read the plague on the headland and contemplate the tragic loss of lives in the aboriginal blood rock massacre.

There is a long sweep of beach to Corinidi and beyond – giving you a lot of time to chat with your walking mates, listen to the boom and fizz of the waves and think. Arrawarra is a good rest spot to eat and drink, while you admire the ancient fish traps.  Ocean View beach and Mullaway beach are short, interspersed with grassy headlands, followed by Darkum beach. Look out for wooden remnants of the the Buster ship wreck as you approach Woolgoolga village.  

Next: Woolgoolga to Moonee
