Wollumbin National Park – Mount Warning Summit Track – 9 km return, Degree of difficulty: Strenuous.
Mount Warning 1,156 m (Prominence 952 m)
Mount Warning is the central volcanic remnant of the world’s largest and oldest extinct volcano, the Tweed Volcano, which would have been about 1,900 m (6,200 ft) above sea level. This volcano erupted around 23 million years ago.
Today the vast areas that were part of the volcano include many mountains and ranges at some distance from Mount Warning, and include the Border Ranges, Tamborine Mountain, the McPherson Range and both the Lamington Plateau and Springbrook Plateaus.
Out of respect for Aboriginal law and culture, the Aboriginal people ask that you consider choosing not to climb Wollumbin-Mount Warning. If you do climb, be aware that it is a steep 9-km return trip, with a challenging final 400 m rock scramble.
