  • 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.

Wollumbin (Mount Warning) summit track is located 12km south-west of Murwillumbah, in Wollumbin National Park. The summit of Wollumbin is a sacred place to the Bundjalung People, and was declared an Aboriginal Place in 2014.

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.
