Offers some views through the trees down to the coast.

Getting there

Follow the Tweed valley way from Burringbar north towards Murwillumbah.

On top of the range you see a picknick hut. 250m later on your right is an unmarked gravel road (Coradilla Road).

Follow it until you come to the trail head at the intersection of Coradilla Road and Baranbali Road.

Barnanbali Road is gated and the start of the walk.

Route/Trail notes

Follow Barnabali Road (= fire trail). At the first fork (about 400-500m in) turn right on a single trail which leads up to Mt. Burringbar.

There are some nice but obstructed views through the trees towards the coast and a little 'marker monument' on the top.

Nice wildlife. Suitable for older kids, some short steeper parts.

Retrace your steps back to the car.

Note:

Some maps show this path continuing on and joining back up with Barabali Road.

I would not recommend it unless you are after a real adventure and well prepared. Somewhat dangerous.

Very steep, loose leave litter, gravel and rocks, no path at all. Here and there a blue ribbon on some trees.

If you choose to do this part, follow the ridge down, once the ferns start, contiue with a tednency slightly to the left.

This incresses the difficulty to 'difficult', expirience and GPS a must.

Not suitable for jung kids, or not sure footed person.

Whole loop 3.7km/ 3hrs

Comments

The track was easy enough to follow, starts off as a fire trail then a little way down the road a track pops up on your right. The walk is short and steep and not unlike Mt Coochin. Unlike Mt Coochin there aren't really any views from the top, probably the best view was from where I parked the car and even that wasn't great. Did see a lot of friendly snakes though!

Climb to top off main access trail is a straight Bush Bash 🤦🏻‍♂️ Some good running leading up to and beyond the summit detour but it only just scrapes in as a ⭐️⭐️ Mission...

This one is a bit more off the beaten track than previous walks I've done, but still really easy to find and follow. A bit overgrown and heaps of spiderwebs to eat on the way in. The cicadas are ear splitting, heard a kookaburra. Some steep parts. I only did up to the marker at the top and back (3KM, 1HR). I stopped a lot to look around, it's quite beautiful, peaceful and secluded.
