Climb Mount Warning – Virtually!
World Heritage listed Mount Warning (Wollumbin), situated in far north-eastern New South Wales in the Tweed Valley, is one of Australia’s most biodiverse regions.
Wollumbin is so unique that it supports an ecosystem unto its own – no other forest of its kind exists anywhere in the world. It is the last refuge of ancient rainforest from a time when Australia was part of the pre-historic super-continent, Gondwanaland. Wollumbin is a sacred place of great significance to the people of the Bundjalung Nation. It is a traditional place of cultural law, initiation and spiritual education. Out of respect for their law and culture, the Bundjalung ask that you consider choosing not to climb Wollumbin.
This Virtual Walkabout of Wollumbin may serve to reduce the number of people who choose to actually impose themselves upon the mountain and its fragile ecosystem. Wollumbin has been identified as having high erosion hazards for both top soil and sub soil structures.
