Starting from the parking and picnic area this return walk is unlike you've seen elsewhere. The sometimes steep track will take you through this unusual fire country, that has been burning for 6000 years, giving the name to the mountain. Summit the head of the coal seam at the viewing platform, which offers a safe point to view the exhaust vents and rocks that have been transformed by the fires. Even if you're not able to see smoke, you may see the heat shimmer coming off the hot rocks from the viewing platform. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wonnarua people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
