Mount Warning is a remnant of the Southern Hemisphere's largest extinct shield volcano. Added to the World Heritage List in 1975, the 1,100 metre high Mount Warning offers a beautiful walk to the summit through rainforest communities. The five hour walk can be steep in parts and temperatures can drop rapidly as you ascend. Given its name by Captain Cook, it was used as a warning to sailors of the dangerous Point Danger near Tweed Heads. The Bundjalung people who inhabited the region before European settlement named it Wollumbin, meaning cloud catcher.
