Mt Warning, also known as Wollumbin is the remaining volcanic plug of one of the world's oldest and largest extinct volcanic sites. Only 10 minutes from the rural township of Murwillumbah, it is pleasant and scenic drive, especially in a VW!

Much of the area around Wollumbin is rainforest and attracts high annual rainfall hence the mountain is often referred to as Cloud Catcher.

The visible structure today is a massive erosion caldera rising to 1156 metres. Mt Warning is of much significance and cultural importance to the Bundjalung people.

Until recently it was climbed extensively every day by locals and tourists. The round trip climb is about 8km and takes 4-5 hours. Although not breaking any state laws, out of respect for Aboriginal traditional law a sign at the bottom of the mountain now asks people to consider not climbing to the summit as a mark of respect for and customs.
