Wollumbin is a sacred place to the Bundjalung people, a place of spectacular natural beauty and spiritual significance.
It is the first place on Australia’s East Coast to see the sunlight each day, making a pre-dawn trek up the mountain a popular ‘bucket list’ activity for many adventurers, photographers and nature-enthusiasts.
The mountain and its surroundings comprise the World Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park (formerly known as Mt Warning National Park) and is actually the eroded remnant of an ancient shield volcano.
The peak is 1,157m above sea level and a return journey from the carpark to the summit and back takes the average person between four and five hours. If you’re planning a climb Wollumbin it is currently closed to the public, until further notice. Mavis Kitchen is a great place to view mount warning and there are so many great hikes and walks. Stop by for breakfast or lunch on your discovery path!
This easy walking track takes you through Gondwana Rainforest of Australia, across Breakfast Creek and through palm forest to a scenic viewing platform. The protection of the mountain and the diverse species of animals, birds, and plants that exist here in the rainforest ecosystem is in a state of repair.
