Lamington National Park – Green Mountains – Albert Creek Circuit – 21.8 km return (class 4)
This circuit leaves the Border Track 5 km from the trailhead and winds down to Echo Falls before following a branch of the Albert River upstream to Echo Point lookout. Panoramic views of Mount Wupawn to Mount Durigan the McPherson Range and south to the Tweed Range can be seen from here. These peaks are all part of the erosion caldera that surrounds Mount Warning, once a central volcanic plug. Traditional owners of the Bundjalang language group call this mighty plug ‘Wollumbin’ (Cloud-catcher).
The circuit continues east along the Queensland—New South Wales border and then turns north-west to connect with the Border Track. In September when the beech orchids Dendrobium falcorostrum are flowering, this circuit takes on a particular charm, with the delicate orchids contrasting with the massive trunks to which they cling.
