Wollumbin-Mount Warning National Park

Natural Attractions

In the hinterland, between Tweed Heads and Byron Bay, World-Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park is a great place to walk or picnic and is home to an important cultural landmark, Wollumbin – Mount Warning, the remnant central vent of an ancient volcano named Mount Warning by Captain Cook.

The Park became known by its Aboriginal name – Wollumbin in 2006. A place of cultural significance to the indigenous people of the Bundjalung Nation, Wollumbin – Mount Warning is for part of the year the first place on the Australian mainland to experience the sunrise. While many adventurous visitors would like to climb the summit at sunrise, under Bundjalung law, only certain people can climb Wollumbin.

A more respectful way to appreciate the site is to walk The Lyrebird Track which crosses a creek and passes through palm forest to a lookout in the beautiful Gondwana Rainforest. An alternative to watching the sunrise from the Wollumbin – Mount Warning Summit is the Pinnacle and Blackbutts lookouts in the nearby Border Ranges National Park. Here you can experience the splendour of the sun illuminating Wollumbin National Park and the Tweed Caldera rim.
