As it's too hot these days for a daytime hike, let's do a nocturnal climb of Mt Warning to watch sunrise from the summit. If U haven't done this before, it's a must. U will only realize when U do it once and U will fall in love with this night hike. This was the best hike I have ever done in Australia! Natures is just magnificent on the way back as the morning light is very soft so make sure to bring your good camera!
Mt Warning summit is the first place on mainland Australia to receive the sun's rays each day. Over 60,000 people a year make the 4.4km, 3-4-hour round-trip trek to the top.
Mt Warning is 14 kilometres west of Murwillumbah, NSW. Actually NSW time is 1 hour ahead of us but to avoid confusion we set all times according to QLD.
Sunrise will be 5AM so we have to be at the car park 2AM to start the hike.
This is a joint event with Happy Hikers meetup group. Please make sure you are fit enough as this is a nearly technical hike and near the summit you have to use chain to drag yourself up (as U can see in the photo!)
If U use a GPS plz enter:
Suburb: Mt Warning or Murwillumbah or Uki (depending on GPS)
Street: Mt Warning Rd
Then U need to drive to the end of Mt Warning Rd which is Breakfast Creek Parking Area where we will meet.
