Mount Warning National Park

Mount Warning National Park is in the Tweed Coast Hinterland on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

A sunrise hike to the top of Mt. Warning, the world's largest extinct shield volcano, rewards the visitor with a view of the first rays of sunlight to hit the Australian mainland. The base of Mt. Warning is a lush rainforest reaching up to the cliff-like rim of the crater. The park contains sub-tropical flora and fauna including numerous tropical birds and occasional sightings of the pademelon wallaby.

Mt Warning and the surrounding rainforest starred as the feature location of the animated film "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" (1992).

History

The name Mt Warning was given by Captain Cook in May 1770 during his voyage up the east coast of Australia. To the local Aboriginal Bundjalung community it is known as Wollumbin. Wollumbin National Park includes the former Mount Warning National Park (the parks were combined in August 2009). Under Bundjalung traditional law, only certain people can climb Wollumbin, so consider choosing to respect their heritage before you climb. The NSW government acknowledges and publishes the tribal concerns at the beginning of the track but does not ban climbing.
