Hinterland / National Parks., Gold Coast: 21 reviews and 38 photos
Technically this park is in NSW, but it's a good day trip from the Gold Coast so I'll include it here. Mt Warning was named by Captain Cook and is known as Wollumbin by Australia's indigenous people. The mountain and surrounding area remains a scared site to the Bundjalung people. As with other parks in the area, Mt Warning National Park has miles of beautiful scenery. You can climb the mountain (from memory it's about a five hour hike (8.8 kilometres) to the summit) and admire the spectacular view from the top. The last leg is a climb using a chain up a steep incline. It's a lot of fun but if you're not used to hiking it's very challenging. There is a 500 metre walk at the bottom of the mountain for those wanting to take it easy. Camping and fires are prohibited in this national park, and there are no amenities at the top of the mountain.
