I’d been to Mt. Warning once before, or at least I’d been to about three kilometres from the parking lot at its base. It was last Anzac Day when our original plan to scale the 1,156m peek unravelled on account of the crowds and rain. But this past Monday Mr. Spring, my Ma and I prevailed, reaching the 360 degree vistas of the summit mere moments before a wall of clouds rolled in and shrouded the valley in a thick rainy fog. The last 400m of the climb involve hauling yourself up a steep rock-face with the aid of a thick chain – not the best bet for those with a fear of heights – and for anyone the hike is a bit of a challenge! By the end we were all in serious need of sustenance so we headed straight for the Rainforest Cafe. It’s a beautiful and relaxed spot tucked just down the road from the national park. Mercifully it was still open at 4pm and their incredibly fresh, flavourful, generously portioned dishes really hit the spot.
