History of Redhead The Awabakal Aboriginals ruled over the area before Europeans settled there. Readhead got its name from the reddish appearance of its headland, which appears red from the sea. Excavations revealed many stone implants and campsites once used by the native people. The first European settlers arrived in the area in the 1820s. James Parker started a banana orchard in Readhead around 1865. Following land grants, mining activities began in the late 1880s. A mining operator built the first railway connecting Redhead with Belmont in 1916, while bus services were inaugurated in 1931. It was home to about 100 houses before World War II. The 1970s saw a real estate boom, and Redhead grew rapidly thereafter.
