Red Rock is north of Corindi, which is north of Coffs Harbour. It is one of many massacre sites in Australia. Thomas Bawden reported that Aborigines had tried to rob a hut at Glenugie Station in the early 1840s. A Major Oakes led a party to find them and overtook them ‘somewhere about Corindi’ where they were ‘severely punished for their deeds’.
