Hard track
Starting on Bembooka Rd in Erina, this walk heads up the narrow Warri Warri track to Honeman's picnic area. You will visit the overgrown Warriwarri Lookout about halfway along this walk, but do not expect grand views! From the lookout, the walk follows wider trails along the much flatter ridge top to the popular Honeman's Lookout. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darkinjung & Guringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From opposite number 2 Bembooka Rd, Green Point (just downhill from the roundabout), this walk leaves the road and follows the track into the bush, with a fence on the right. The track soon leaves the fence (and ignores a track to the right) and heads up the hill. The track follows the ridge, getting steeper as it gets higher. As the track nears the rocks, it zigzags a little, working its way up, then a short distance later comes to a clearing, bench seat and the signposted 'Warriwarri Lookout' sign.....
Turn map Directions & comments
Start.
After 730 m find the "Warriwarri Lookout" (on your left).
Warriwarri Lookout
Warriwarri Lookout

Warriwarri Lookout is an overgrown and signposted lookout in the middle of Kincumber Mountain Reserve. There is a fairly large clearing and a bench seat. There are slightly better views north, past the sign at the unfenced rock outcrop. The filtered views look north-east. The view from the lookout is overgrown, so do not expect much in the way of views.

Honeman's Rock (aka Honeyman's Rock) is a large rock outcrop in front of the mud brick building, in the Honeman's Rock Picnic area. The exposed section of rock is 60m long and about 30m wide, with the western side having a significant unfenced drop. The rock is named after Cecil Lyle Honeman who became a lease holder on the mountain in 1962. The rock has a large depression that once filled with water, and a drain has been dug to keep the pool empty and clear of rubbish.
