CAMPS at Little Beach, Red Rock NSW
Beaches & Coasts

Must see: Red Rock Beach, NSW

A stand out destination, Red Rock Beach is north of Coffs Harbour, NSW. You can see why it has that name – but have you visited?  It is just so special because it has two beaches – offering totally different experiences, a creek and a river! Corindi River and the beaches surround Reflections Holiday Park Red Rock.  After lunch in the picnic area (watching kayakers), we swam at Little Beach, perfect for families at this sheltered cove.  There was even a bit of shade on the sand when we visited from the Pandanus trees. Beware of tidal channels here. Note:

This is a special national park and the site is aptly names the Pyramid Campground. You’ll see why when you venture down the MANY steps into the canyon below. Bring a picnic, we didn’t but you could have spent all day swimming (chilly!) and birdwatching,
