The Alum Mountain in Bulahdelah, has recently been declared an Aboriginal place. This means that they have put a ban on rock related activities on the mountain, including climbing, abseiling, gliding etc. You are only allowed to access the area for bush walking at present. It doesn’t look good with a new gate installed and a sign at the base of the mountain. Please refrain from climbing in the area. If access is ever re-established notification will be made here.
