Location:
Mount Warning National Park

Organised by:
Bond University Bushwalking Society


Come join the Bond University Bushwalking Society (BUBS) for a scenic 8.8km return walk to the summit of Woolumbin-Mount Warning through a national rainforest park.

Mt Warning is a remnant central vent of an ancient volcano and is the first place on Australian mainland to be touched by the morning sun. This walk through the Northern Rivers rainforest region has become a favourite of locals for the summit's views of the national park and coast.

IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS:
- MEDIUM FITNESS: the climb is difficult with rocky and uneven ground, and ends with a challenging steep rock scramble before the summit.
- WATER & LUNCH: water is necessary due to the length of the walk, and we will be stopping at the summit for lunch
- MEDICAL CONDITIONS: if you have a pre-existing medical condition (such as asthma, diabetes, anaphylaxis etc) please bring your own medications (such as ventolin, epipen etc). If you normally strap/brace your knees/ankles, please do this in preparation.
- CLOTHING: ensure that you wear sneakers/hiking boots, a hat, and an extra layer of clothing temperature drops during ascent (especially at the summit where we will be having lunch)
- NUMBERS: walk will be capped at 25 people, please click attending only if you are definitely coming.

PLAN:
The plan is to meet at 0900 at the Breakfast Creek parking area, before walking up 4.4km in approximately 2 hours, staying at the summit for lunch, and then descending downwards. To get to Mount Warning, travel from the Gold Coast along the Pacific Hwy to Murwillumbah and take a left onto Riverview Road and follow the signs to Mount Warning National Park (takes 1 hour).

Look forward to seeing you there!
