Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open

This track also branches off the Mount Hobwee circuit, 2km from the Border Track junction. Garragoolba lookout features uninterrupted views of Springbrook, the Tweed Valley and Mount Warning.

Only after naturally occurring events such as severe wildfires or storms are there uninterrupted views of Springbrook, the Tweed Valley and Mount Warning from Wagawn. In the interim years the view may be interrupted by natural regrowth. Please do not damage or remove vegetation as many of these plants are significant species in the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Remember, all plants are protected by legislation.

Really good walk, although we got lost on the way there following google map (again). So just be careful to go to Bina Bura and not just the location of the hike!

Completed this today. I came through from the numinbah border and up past the bushrangers cave. The track was pretty overgrown but everything is at the moment. Its a tough ascent, one of the tougher ones in the Tweed Basin for sure. Well worth it though. Nice view back to surfers from the summit. Theres a reasonable amount of pick ribbons but you'll find sections with nothing and you'll have to figure it out. All in all a great day, I'll do this one again for sure.

Some really amazing lookouts along the way. I'd probably skip Mt Wagawn in favor of more impressive lookouts nearby. I highly recommend checking out Garragoolba Lookout, you'll see the signed sidetrack roughly 1km before Wagawn.

Completed Hobwee and Wagawn in 5.5 hours with half hour break at Dacelo lookout. Very easy track overall as its flat most of the way, especially the border track sections. Would come back and do it again!

We did Wagawn and Hobwee in 6 hours in the rain. A complete white out which meant it was just walking around the rainforest for a while with no views. Still a fun day out and we heard a few Lyrebirds which was lovely :)
Well graded track, despite it being a mountain it seems pretty flat for the whole distance.

A great walk added Mt Merino to it and Hobwee. A real long day!
