Wollumbin Mt Warning dramatically rises from the World Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park.
Wollumbin Mt Warning stands at an impressive height of 1157m above sea level and is a remnant central vent of an ancient volcano. It can be seen from a range of vantage points in and around the Caldera that makes up the Tweed Valley.
The World Heritage Park is recognised as part of the Gondwana Rainforest of Australia. Rich in flora and fauna, it is a must see for any visit to the Tweed. Take a short walk along the Lyrebird Track, where you get a chance to experience the sounds and smells of the rainforest and explore under the canopy of the trees. Listen out for the calls of Whipbirds, Noisy Pitta and, of course, Lyrebirds.
For the more adventurous there is always the option of climbing to the summit. Make it to the top by sunrise and you will be the first people in Australia to see the sun! The walk takes you through stunning scenery and offers magnificent views of the Tweed Caldera and beyond. Allow at least 2 hours to reach the summit and another 2 hours for the return journey. Be prepared for all weather conditions. The climb is a steep 8.8km return trip with a challenging final rock scramble. In winter it is not advisable to start the walk after noon because the area becomes extremely dark and dangerous in winter after this time.
Whether you are walking to the summit, or exploring this spectacular landscape from below, extend your day with a picnic lunch at Korrumbyn picnic area or beside Breakfast Creek.
