Guests treated to walk through time at Red Rock Holiday Park

December 22, 2016 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Guests at North Coast Holiday Parks (NCHP) Red Rock were treated with an Aboriginal Cultural Walk this month when the popular holiday park partnered with the local indigenous community.  A favourite holiday spot for many, Red Rock holds a long and rich cultural history for Aboriginal community members living on Gumbaynggirr land.

Led by local Elder Uncle Mark Flanders, more than 30 park guests and members of the local community enjoyed the guided walk from Red Rock Holiday Park through to Jewfish Point.

Uncle Mark Flanders said he was pleased to share his extensive knowledge of the area’s cultural significance, as well as the environmental values of the area for Aboriginal people.

“Not only was I able to share the indigenous history of the area through story but I also gave an insight into the local Gumbaynggirr way of life by demonstrating native bush foods and medicines found in the area,” Uncle Mark Flanders said.


“At the end of the day I was pleased to share with everyone the cultural aspects of the area in an interactive way.”

The Cultural Walk is part of the ‘Can Do Campers’ Program, an ongoing partnership between NCHP Red Rock and Wetland Care Australia.

NCHP Red Rock Manager’s Geoff and Kylie Wruck said the program allowed the park to offer an expanded holiday experience.

“We were very enthusiastic when we were approached by Wetland Care Australia about hosting the ‘Can-Do Campers’ program,” they said.

“Not only is Red Rock a naturally beautiful area, it is also rich with cultural heritage and environmental diversity – the perfect place for such an enriching program.”
