Mount Warning Sunrise Walk – Climb Mount Warning

This Mount Warning tour includes overnight camping right on the foot of Wollumbin National Park followed by a dawn Mount Warning climb. On the first day, enjoy the peaceful and uncrowded forest setting at your Mount Warning base camp in the Byron hinterland. Take a splash in a rock pool or simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the Mt Warning Rainforest Park. Finish your day sitting around a campfire, toasting marshmallows and enjoying a delicious, locally sourced BBQ dinner before falling asleep under the stars in your tent.

The following day, climb Mount Warning at dawn to reach the highest point in the region and bask in the first sunrays to hit mainland Australia. How long does it take to climb Mount Warning? The journey is a 9km, 4 hour self-guided return walk that takes you through subtropical World Heritage listed rainforest and, upon ascent, offers 360 degree ocean and Byron hinterland views. It never fails to inspire.

Please note that Byron Bay Adventure Tours does not operate within Wollumbin National Park and that therefor the actual climb of Mt Warning is self-guided.
