Climb Mt Warning / Visit the National Park

Located inland from Tweed Heads in Northern NSW, the aboriginal people call it Wollumbin, a name meaning fighting chief of the mountains. They believed that thunder and lightning seen on the mountain were fighting warriors, the wounds of these fights being represented by the landslides that occurred. The name, Mt Warning, was given by Captain Cook in May, 1770 during his trip up the east coast of Australia. The park features a vast range of temperate and sub-tropical rainforests. Walks are available from the base of Mt Warning to the top. Those planning on the walk should allow themselves a good half day for the round trip and should wear good sturdy shoes.
