Burning Mountain Nature Reserve
Forget global warming for a while and marvel at this coal seam, about 30 metres underground, that has been burning as hot as 1700°C for an estimated 5500 years. A 3.5-kilometre walk to the top of the mountain through open forest offers views of the surrounding area and of the vents where the smoke rises, making the mountain seem to burn. The reserve is near Wingen in the upper Hunter region.
