When seen from a distance Mt Warning or Wollumbin, is awe inspiring and spiritual. Seen from Brunswick Heads, Mullumbimby or on the highway. I was lucky to have clear views as the days were sunny. A special blessing to all who see her.

I don't consider myself fit at all, I can walk 9min/km at fastest pace on flat ground so Mount Warning was a very big challenge for me and one I will cherish forever. It still feels surreal that I was able to reach the summit. This is all through the eyes of a 140kg unfit bloke. So you're talking a good 4km of allot of steps, this itself is a leg killer and tests your endurance. I love going for long walks on weekends regularly seeing 10-16km's, but 4kms up a mountain to me was much much more difficult even at a slow pace. The beautiful rainforest and scenery with the bird songs constantly in the background help inspire and motivate. Also it helps to have friends that can tolerate your constant complaining. Reaching the final climb, the so called rock scramble, you start to question whether it was a good idea to get out of bed that Sunday morning. I tried to keep out of my mind that I had met someone on the way up that was as big as me, and he had told me he failed the climb and only got half way up the chained section. Having these doubts will keep you grounded, of course it's going to be tough, but you can do tough. Once I started climbing up those rocks it really hit me that this was NOT a climb for everyone, but seeing Children and much older people than myself climbing up and down made me realise that I was just putting doubts in my own mind. So I took my time, enjoyed the views, let my legs recover, took a few selfies and then slowly but surely gradually made it past the chained section. This itself was a win. Now I was just getting mad at how much further the summit seemed to be. I was fortunate to have a friend continuously encourage me and then about 30m from the top the smiling faces of two more friends that had already peaked really gave me that final drive. I made it. Legs cramping, eyes watering, shirt drenched, hands covered in dirt. I made it.
A solid hour at the top enjoying the views, a lunch and lots of photos it was time to face the rock scramble once again. It's also incredibly difficult and my legs cramped up ALLOT, to the point I had to stop for minutes at a time to get feeling back. But it was still faster and I think less physically demanding than going up. Once back on the trail it's quite enjoyable, your legs do cop a beating but you can certainly enjoy the scenery allot more. I know I did. Our descent was half the time of our ascent, our overall time on the mountain was 5 hours, that was including the lunch at the top. It took 2hr40min for me personally to reach summit, my friends ranged from 1hr20 to 2hr20.
I highly recommend anyone able to give this hike/ climb a go, it's a marvelous achievement and allot of fun at the end of the day.

For our group of six retirees, the short Lyrebird Walk at the base of Mount Warning hit the mark. There were stairs but the length of the walk and the gradient were acceptable. The platform at the end of the walk gave a great view through the trees and enhanced the rainforest experience even though we didn't encounter the lyrebirds!

We have hiked Mount Warning several times and it is a good workout and the views amazing, however today it was raining so we cruised around through Uki towards Kyogle and just before Sphinx Rock found this amazing house painted just like a Licorice Allsort.

Located in Wollumbin National Park, Mt Warning is a culturally significant and traditional location of the Bundjalung Nation.

A gradual 4.4km walk up (8.8km return), via steps, narrow paths, which is not that steep until you hit the chain rock climb. For the most part, you traverse through temperate rain forest where you will hear and see birds, lizards (and possibly snakes!) etc.

The last section of the climb is unique and requires serious leg work - I found that climbing up the rocks and not using the chain was easier (unless wet?). The chain is best for coming down. That being said, gloves for the chain coming down probably will not make much difference - upper body strength will.

Once at the top you get 360 degree views of the hinterland, coast; it can be windy and baking hot i.e. there is not a lot of shade. You can see the coast line - the clearer the day, the more you see - Byron and maybe Tweed.

After the summit you retrace your steps back down - using the chain on the descent, facing up hill like abseiling is best.

A round trip is about 4 hours: can be quicker / slower depends on fitness, speed, time at the top, number of people on the track etc.

Note the following:

- It is small carpark so parking can lead to a couple hundred metre walk to the track.
- There are no toilets
- There is a picnic table - but no BBQ
- There is no cost (even though within Wollumbin National Park)
- Limited shelter along the track especially up high; bugs, sun, etc
- Comfortable footwear is recommended (I did see a guy barefoot at about 3km - not sure where he finished)
- There are snakes. I saw a 2m harmless python; a snake is a snake.
- The drive in requires you to cross several creeks; water over the road prevents access. Fording the water is not recommended
- There is some information and signs regarding the walk at the carpark.
- Climbing to the summit is against the wishes of Bundjalung Elders wishes.
- There are 5 helicopter rescue location along the track which also advise distance from the summit and back to the carpark.

Lastly there is 300m lyre bird walk through a small part of the rain forest. You may see bush turkeys etc., this path requires you to cross a small creek and following an uphill track.

Generally a good experience and worth the effort as hot days lead to high humidity especially under the canopy with little breeze.

The trek up to the Mt Warning Summit is a great challenge. The trail is well kept. The last section to the summit is very steep & you definitely need to take your time. The views are amazing when you do get to the top. It took us 3 3/4 hrs.

This is a good work out for the first few kilometres. Then you will see the chain to help you rock hop / climb this is where gloves will save you hands from some wear and tear.

A nice walk that is certainly a work out. It takes about 3 hours if you keep moving at a reasoanle pace.

Went there few hours before sunset, absolutely stunning. It was suggested by a local boat tour guy, and he said he would be surprised if we don't see whales (currently whale season). Mt. Warning had an extremely wide multi angles view of the coastline. We saw total of three whales within mins of arrival. Great outlook points. Even without whales are worth going. There seems to be lack of parking, so be ware. Also there isn't that many trees, summer could be very hot. I would imagine early sunrise, or sunset times probably most beautiful. But very worth your time anytime of the day if nice weather, great high view of stunning seashores.

This was a challenge but worth every minute. We started the walk / climb to the top at around 4.30am and reached the top at 6.30am and it was well worth the effort of walking in the dark as the sunrise at the top was amazing. There was a bit of cloud at the top but it soon parted so we could see the sunrise and the view from north south and west. It was very cold at the top, needed to put our jackets back on. Great photo opportunity in any direction at the top and some great look outs around 3/4 of the way too. This 8.8km round walk did have some tough moments, the last section climbing the rock face whilst holding the chains and the many steps, it is certainly not for the faint hearted and its a real workout. Allow around 4 hours at least as it's 2 hours to the top (without stopping) and you might rest for 30 minutes at the top to eat (bring a sandwich) and an hour and a half on the way down.

Many people climb mount warning in the dark to catch the sunrise . Unfortunately by the time we got to the rock climb ( scramble ) just before the summit the sun had come up . We left the bottom at 5.20am . I would imagine the scramble to be difficult in the dark as is difficult and physical even with sunlight . Their were plenty of people at the top who had done it though . Not for the faint hearted . Head lights are a must if leaving before sun up . Was also cold at the top , but we were fine while hiking . It’s a very busy mountain . There are amenities at the bottom and a shorter walk .
