The Mount Warning Rainforest Park is practically at the base of Mount Warning – the first place that the sun hits in Australia each morning.
The trek to the top of the mountain, particularly for sunrise, was a well-known climb but has since been closed out of respect for the Aboriginal custodians. You will also find a beautiful short, 10-minute rainforest walk there for those who don’t want to do the climb.
The caravan park itself is set along the running creek from the mountain and is surrounded by glorious Gondwana rainforest. You can spend your days paddling in the fresh water creek, swimming in the pool, relaxing by the forest, reading a book from the Book Exchange or playing Pool or Table Tennis at the games area. You can also take a short drive around the local area and have some lunch at the scenic Uki Pub.

Things to Do at Mount Warning
Mount Warning Rainforest Park is nestled right at the foot of Mount Warning and sits at the entrance to World Heritage Listed Wollumbin National Park.
Wollumbin (Mount Warning) Summit
( Now permanently closed )
Wollumbin represents a deeply spiritual place for our Aboriginal ancestors and as such, the summit track is now permanently closed out of respect for the custodians of the land.
As the Mount Warning Peak is the first place in Australia to be hit by the sun each morning, it had always been a popular summit for hikers and climbers.
