We parked near the Red Rock shop, and strolled across the park watching the fisherfolk and pelicans waiting for a feed in Corindi creek. This family-friendly walk begins at the boardwalk on the eastern side of the recreation park, near the boat ramp.
Its a pretty walk with mangroves, peeling paperbarks and corkwood lining the path. Slender casurina needles were hung with water drops from a recent rain shower, and saltmarsh fringed the creek.
We walk pass a large tree with a curious hollow base and discover a secret tribe of gnomes, with a postbox for leaving messages.
Jewfish Point was a meeting and ceremonial place for the Gumbaynggirr, as well as a favourite place to collect oyster. Red Rock is the site of a massacre of the Gumbaynggir people in the 1880s – we will visit the memorial later on the Red Rock headland.
