Mt Warning National Park

mt-warning-approaching

Mt Warning National Park is located in the Tweed Valley region, south of the Queensland-New South Wales border. The park is accessible 12km west of Murwillumbah via Kyogle Road. The prominent mountain formation is the remains of an ancient volcanic plug dating back millions of years ago. The picturesque mountain is surrounded by beautiful countryside and the drive is very pleasant.

The entrance road to the park is narrow and winding and 30km speed limit is recommended. Note this park is definitely not suitable for caravans and trailers may find it difficult to turn around if the carpark is busy. Mt Warning Caravan Park is located near the park entrance and makes a great and convenient place to set up camp and go exploring the national park at your leisure.

mt-warning-summit-views The Mt Warning Summit Walk is 8.8km return and is physically demanding. The return walk takes 4 to 5 hours and the track is steep, climbing to 1157 metres above sea level, with a steep rock scramble near the summit. The panoramic views of the Tweed Valley are breathtaking. If you’re attempting this walk ensure you take plenty of water, wear sturdy footwear and do not begin the walk after 12pm in winter so as to avoid the fall of darkness.

The Lyrebird Lookout Walk is far easier and suitable for the less fit and energetic. A 250 metre walk over Breakfast Creek and through magnificent rainforest takes you to a lookout platform where bird watchers can relax and watch and listen for the variety of birdlife present here.
