Wollumbin stands as a majestic mountain in a bowl – shaped valley surrounded by a ring of mountain ranges, the Mt Warning Caldera.
Wollumbin stands 1157 metres high today. Twenty million years ago, it was the main plug or outlet of the massive volcano from which poured lava, forming the mountqains and reefs in the north-east corner of New South Wales.

Bush tucker is the food Australian Aboriginal People lived on Prior to colonisation. It includes edible plants, nuts, tubers, fruits, seafood and game.
Their understanding of Indigenous plants goes way beyond just knowing what is edible. They used plants for tools, weapons, and for medicine and healing. They understood the seasons and the life cycle of plants and animals and the effect that had on their own survival.
At Evans Head, a scarred tree stands. A tallow wood, its bark was removed by the local Indigenous mob to make a small canoe or repair a canoe. There are two stories attached to this site.
The First is that the bark was removed by young boys being trained in canoe-making and bark removal. The actual scar would have been much larger if the boys had been making a full size canoe to seat two men.
