Please note
  • Part of this walk involves traversing rock platforms. Please check tide charts as some sections may be impassable in rough ocean conditions during a high tide.
  • The route is best walked north to south so the sun is on your back and not in your eyes
  • Toilets can be found at Pebbly Beach and Red Rock
  • You’ll need to arrange safe river crossings at Wooli and Red Rock – for help crossing these rivers, please contact Wooli: 0439 409 909 or Red Rock: 6649 2730.
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go whale watching

Wooli to Red Rock is the most strenuous and remote section of Yuraygir coastal walk. Enjoy the challenge of crossing rocky platforms when the tide’s out and crossing rivers using boat transport. The route can be tackled as a challenging day walk or part of a multi-day trek.

Hike long stretches of rocky shoreline interspersed with high-energy pebbly beaches, find the way across a tidal creek and walk along sandy beaches fringed with lush pandanus palms. You can even stop wherever you like and try your hand at fishing.

You’ll see protected habitat for the endangered little tern at both the northern and southern ends of Station Creek Beach, near Pebbly Beach campground and Red Rock town. Keep your binoculars handy for spotting these tiny migratory seabirds with distinctive black, white and grey markings. Breeding has been increasingly successful due to management action and visitation control of this part of the national park.
