A whole new crag of boulders above and behind the Classic Boardwalk crag. Go above the “And Better” boulder and walk for a minute untill you find a “Tubed metal pole” - follow that. More information on the new Qld Bouldering Guidebook.

Access issues inherited from White Rock Conservation Area

Be aware that there is a rare plant that calls the boulders we climb home. It is in our interest to accommodate it. More details can be found on the ACAQ web site:



Ethic inherited from White Rock Conservation Area

Redbank is home to some extremely rare plants that call the top of some of our boulders home. If there are logs defining top outs please respect these and avoid trampling anything that isn't grass. For more information check out .

Be mindful of other users, don't leave rubbish or disturb any vegetation. Stick to the established tracks where possible. Do not use steel wire brushes as these will take away the holds.

Opposite Quiet Tennis. Start under the lip and make a big move over. Start the long climb to the top. Originally climb with a cheap and skinny mat.

Easy bridging route standing start with plenty of holds to top out on the main cliff

Stand start and move up the committing big pappy bloc. Excellent movement

Like normal tennis, but without the racquet. Stand start on the left hand sidepull/edge and maneuver up across a variety of slopey holds. Technical.

FA: Scott Walsh, Angus Davidson & Mikey Musch, 22 Jul 2020

Around the corner from quit tennis approximately 10 metre from the corner of the cliff edge A good one for beginners Standing start using obvious jugs half way up to the crux from here traverse to the corner of the high boulder using undercling's and side pulls before using the corner to top out at 4m

FA: jamie Johnston, 14 Sep 2020

Start under the huge bulge and make a long move to a decent hueco, supporting crimps will get you in to position for the tiny face crimp over the bulge, from there make a huge move to a decent crimp on the face and continue crimping powerfully until victory jugs await you.
