Wollumbin (Mount Warning) summit track is located 12km south-west of Murwillumbah, in Wollumbin National Park.

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. 

Wollumbin (Mount Warning) summit track 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.

Border Ranges National Park and Nightcap National Park provide some of the best photo opportunities of Wollumbin (Mount Warning) in all its glory. 

If you do climb this track (please don't), 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.
