- Please note
- Wollumbin is a place of great spiritual significance to the Bundjalung People. Visitors are asked to respect their wishes and choose not to climb the summit track.
- Border Ranges National Park and Nightcap National Park provide some of the best photo opportunities of Wollumbin in all its glory.
- If you do climb this track it requires extreme caution. It’s long, steep, difficult and dangerous in places. It shouldn’t be attempted in poor weather or when high winds or thunderstorms are forecast.
- For your safety, set out before midday in winter as descending in the dark is treacherous and you may become lost.
- Take advantage of toilets at the carpark. You’ll need to bag and carry out your waste, including toilet waste, on the summit track.
Wollumbin (Mount Warning) summit track is located 12km south-west of Murwillumbah, in Wollumbin National Park. This is a sacred place to the Bundjalung People, and was declared an Aboriginal Place in 2015. Visitors are asked to respect the wishes of the Bundjalung Elders and avoid climbing this very difficult track.
Wollumbin, which means ‘cloud catcher’ to some Aboriginal People, is a traditional place of cultural law, initiation and spiritual education for the people of the Bundjalung Nation. Under Bundjalung law, only certain people can climb the summit. Out of respect for their law and culture, consider not climbing the summit.
If you choose to tackle this challenging track, take extreme care. The 8.8km return walk takes at least 5hrs and is long and steep, with a very strenuous 100m vertical rock scramble to reach the summit. The high, exposed summit can attract wild weather and the track shouldn’t be attempted in poor conditions, especially during thunderstorms. In winter, it’s important to start before midday to avoid a dangerous descent in the dark.
You can also try Goorgana walking track or Pholis Gap walking track in nearby Nightcap National Park, or Best of All lookout at Queensland’s Springbrook National Park.
