Wollumbin Mount Warning is a remnant of the Southern Hemisphere's largest extinct shield volcano. Added to the World Heritage List in 1975, the 1100 metre high Wollumbin Mount Warning offers a beautiful view of the summit from surrounding hinterland towns.

Given its name by Captain Cook, it was used as a warning to sailors of the dangerous Point Danger near Tweed Heads. The Bundjalung people who inhabited the region before European settlement named it Wollumbin, meaning cloud catcher.
