Mount Warning

I had always wanted to Climb Mount Warning and a bunch of people I knew were doing it so I thought I would try it out. I can tell you its a tough walk, virtually all uphill, when you get nearer the summit you have to rock climb up a cliff of rocks which have chains on the side. Am half way up those chains I was dying. The view from the top was amazing though and something ticked off my list.

Towering over Murwillumbah and the Tweed Valley in far north-eastern New South Wales, is Mount Warning, the central core of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest extinct shield volcano.
named "Wollumbin", meaning "cloud catcher", by the Bundjalung people who inhabited the region before European settlement, it is the first place on Australia’s mainland to be touched by the morning sun.
