The Red Cliffs were once known by the Aboriginal name, Kau-in Kauin, meaning blood-red or the cliffs of running blood. These cliffs at Redcliffe Point overlook Moreton Bay: a beautiful bay of coves and islands ranging in size from tiny Bird Island to the giant Moreton Island (Author: Mennis, Mary, 1938 – Title: The red cliffs : a story of Moreton Bay)
The Redcliffe Peninsula was the home of a clan of aborigines called the ‘Ningy Ningy’. whose name means oysters, are identified as being the southern most clan of the Undambi people of the Sunshine Coast. Ningy Ningy are red-ochre people. (http://www.writework.com/essay/ningy-ningy-people-redcliffe-peninsula)
