Mount Warning-Wollumbin rises out of the rainforest in the heart of Bundjalung country in New South Wales
'Gumerah' – Living Water
Yaru Water is sourced and bottled from water that flows deep below the foothills of an ancient volcano. Mount Warning-Wollumbin rises out of the rainforest in the heart of Bundjalung country in Northern New South Wales. For thousands of years subtropical rains have blown in from vast expanses of untouched Pacific Ocean. They have showered the mountain and the surrounding volcanic rim, filtering deep down into the land below. This has created a precious underground water source, filtered by layers of ancient volcanic rock (Yaru means Rock in Bundjalung). The water that flows through this rock is high in minerals and naturally alkaline* (*still water).
Of Cultural Significance
'Jagun' - A Sacred Land
Throughout the ages, Mount Warning-Wollumbin has been culturally, spiritually and historically significant. From early history, this mountain has been very important to the Bundjalung people, and to many other Aboriginal tribes. Due to its proximity to Cape Byron, Australia’s most easterly point, Mount Warning-Wollumbin is the first place in Australia to see the sun each morning. Culturally, this is of great significance, as the sun is a source of energy and life. “This life flow is reflected in the water, in the mountains, and in the land. In everything here we see the power and strength of spirit. The water that flows from this mountain also represents the life force and power for our people. Our ancestors drank this living water, and today we are sharing this precious source, for life, health, and abundance to all who thirst.” ~ Kyle Slabb, Traditional Owner, Bundjalung Nation, and Original Co-Founder.
