Wooli to Red Rock is a 15.5km, grade 5 one way hike, located in the Yuraygir National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 6hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

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.
