Tuesday 10th January: Mount Warning

Yet another ‘I’m awake early, so might as well go for a walk on the beach and see the sun come up’ morning. (https://goo.gl/photos/UdDW5MuYT3NmVf1a7)

We headed off later to visit Mount Warning. We can see the extinct volcano from our balcony and it was also in the background of the sunset photos I took yesterday.
It’s covered in sub-tropical rainforest and we decided to follow the ‘Lyrebird Trail’ rather than climb to the summit for two very good reasons:
1. It is a sacred mountain for the local Aboriginal nation and they ask that people don’t climb it.
2. It’s a 9km step climb which apparently can take up to 5 hours to climb and descend (which given today’s heat would have been intolerable)

This evening, I took a trip out to Cudgen Head (where the river meets the sea) before heading back to last night’s spot at the creek to get some more sunset photos (I know, obsessed).
