Wollumbin, which rises from World Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park to a height of 1,157 metres above sea level, is a remnant central vent of an ancient volcano. Formerly known as Mount Warning, this spectacular peak can be viewed from a range of vantage points in the surrounding massive crater (caldera), including Cudgen Nature Reserve, Border Ranges National Park and Nightcap National Park, Cape Byron Lighthouse and various settlements. It’s highly significant to Aboriginal people, particularly the Bundjalung nation, as a place of sacred ceremonies linked to traditional law and custom.
Wollumbin National Park is great for family visits. Head off on Lyrebird track for a short walk through the lush rainforest, then make your way to Korrumbyn Creek or Breakfast Creek picnic areas for lunch.
View the Environment and Heritage webpage for an update on management of the park.
