Warning - Agressive property Owners in National Park
Apr. 2021 • Family
Hi all
It is really sad to say the National Parks have now closed the park to the public due to indigenouse title over the top 800m of the peak. This is a really beautiful moutain, covered in rainforest. Once the core of a volcaneo. My family hearts have been with this mountsin due to many visits since we were kids.

Our last visit was very sad. The road leading into the national park has now been closed to everyone except four white families and their friends who own land adjacent to the public built road in the national park. Warning don't walk the local access road. These property owners are very aggressive, verbally assalting families and damaging cars parked at the end of the public road.

Stay safe and be careful with the vigilanties on the road into the National Park.

Difficult hike even for fit - but view is amazing
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Started climbing at 3:30 am. A friend of my daughters suggested head torches amazing they were great. 10.00 for two at Bunnings did the trick. It was black out when we started. Completed it but it was difficult. The steps are plentiful and at time’s difficult you could definitely feel it in your legs going up and 100% by the time you go down. As you get closer to the top the climb is more difficult and then there is the chain rope climb at the end. It’s doable but it is not easy. At times it’s vertical and if you are afraid of heights it does stop you in your tracks. We hike and run daily but do not rock climb to me that was another skill level. Thought it would never end and worried about how the hell I was going to get down. But once at the top you forgot the climb. We made it in the two hours to see the sunrise. Lots of young adults at top waiting as well by the time got up there. Beautiful view worth the climb and felt great challenging ourselves. Climb back down was just as scary took a bit to over come nerves sometimes needed to slide on bum. Over all great day I would definitely recommend it just be aware it is challenging. I wouldn’t do it again definitely a one time trip for me.

Great for sunrise
Jan. 2020
Took us 1hr 25min to reach the summit with no stops. About 1hr 10min on the way down.

I would suggest getting to the summit about 15-20 minutes before the sunrise as the view is more amazing just before it rises.

Beautiful rainforest walk but only for the fit folks
Sep. 2019
We walked halfway up the summit and the lower walk to a lookout at the bottom of Mt Warning. The climb was relentless but but the rainforest and wildlife fascinating. Wear appropriate climbing gear and plenty of water. Allow 5 hours if planning to go to the top.

Tough but worth the effort
Jul. 2019 • Couples
The climb was far more strenuous than we had envisioned as it is a pretty constant upward 'track' that has lots of steps (apparently around 1000 so I read) and is very rocky and uneven for most of it. The last 400mtrs was a huge challenge for me as I am afraid of heights and it is a sheer rocky climb but with the encouragement of those around me and sheer stubborn determination I made it and conquered my fear. The view from the top was amazing. The walk up and back is stunning too..... rain forest and amazing bird life to hear in the complete silence of the forest.
As long as you go prepared with good footware, water, snacks to eat up the top and leave plenty of time to do it you should be ok. You need to be reasonably fit though as it is a constant climb.

Sunrise
Aug. 2018 • Friends
Get up early. Plan for about 2hrs prior to sunrise. Good shoes. Head torch. There’s a viewing platform half way up. But definately get to the top.

Fantastic climb with the family for Mother's Day
May 2019 • Family
I did this climb on Mothers Day, with my partner all of our five children. The older two bought their partners and one month old grand daughter along. My three younger children 13, 9 and 8 had no trouble at all. Staying at a nearby caravan park, we didn't get up early for the sunrise walk but managed to be at the start of the trail by 8am. We were feeling pretty confident until the trail started!! I thought it might start out with a bit of a slope, then a few steps but no - you start straight up with the steps and they don't stop! After ten minutes or so you get into your stride. It is a long walk, 9kms up and back, so don't rush. There are a lot of tree roots coming out over the track and the stone steps are all different heights and widths, so with the baby on my son-in-laws back we didn't want to risk any falls by going up in the dark. There are signposts along the way marking the quarter, half, and three quarter way up marks. We plodded along, took stops whenever someone needed one and drank plenty of water. We had energy balls, beef jerky, craisins (dried cranberries) and Up'n'Go drinks for energy and sustinance. I had a folded up piece of paper with trivia questions I had printed off the internet for when our minds needed to focus on something different. It took about two and a half hours to reach the summit. The kids did the rock scramble like monkeys! I was a bit slower but made it up no problems. At no point did I think I couldn't do it - the walk isn't really hard but it is CONSTANT! It is an amazing view from the top but I wasn't thinking of the view I was just so damn proud of myself that I had made it. What an achievement. I had people telling me before I left that it is sooooo hard, not to be ashamed if I don't make it to the top... As someone who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks it was a huge thing for me to get out of my comfort zone. It was so lovely to have all five of my kids with me, yelling "How you doing back there Mum?" and keeping me going. There were a couple in their seventies heading up as we came down. I found coming down harder on my knees but i had hiking poles which were great - I could put some weight on those. What a fantastic challenge and a beautiful clear day to be out in the bush and not stuck inside on a TV.

Excellent trek, BUT WATCH YOUR FOOTING
Jun. 2018 • Couples
I travelled up here with my 6yr old. We did it, with a few complaints near the top, LOL. He absolutely loved the last stretched climbing the rock face. There is a chain to the side to assist in the climb. Please wear appropriate footwear. I found the footing harder than the climb. Whilst we were climbing, two separate parties were carrying down walkers with sprained ankles. It is worth the climb. The main views are at the summit, otherwise rainforest. Respect the rules and take your time. Saves rescue coming for you. Happy travels.
