The Red Rock Walking Trail is located South of Agnes Water
An intermediate amount of fitness is required as the track consists of steep inclines, boardwalks, sand and stepping stones.
From Agnes Water follow Springs Road for approximately 2.5kms until you see a sign on your right “Reedy Creek Reserve”, turn left, directly opposite onto a gravel track for 800 meters and park near the trees. There is a sign marking the start of Red Rock Walking Trail. Lock your vehicle and take your valuables with you.
The beaches and the scenery are superb! You may even sight turtles and a dolphin or two. The track is to the right as you enter the beach and to Red Rock will take a good hour of walking or several hours if you wish to stop, view the scenery or take a swim.
During the winter months, look for whales passing through as they migrate on their journey north.
November and December are the best months to catch a glimpse of the nesting mother turtles
- Be sure to keep your distance if you notice any mother turtles making their way up the beach to nest.
- If you are lucky enough to see a turtle on the beach, keep your distance and stay still.
- Try not to approach the turtles as they may feel threatened and will return to the ocean without laying their eggs.
- If a turtle is digging her nest, please remain at least 10 metres away.
- Once digging has finished, wait 15 minutes before approaching from behind.
- Please remember laying eggs is stressful and tiring, so please give her some room to move back to the ocean.
