Glasshouse Mountains Sunshine Coast
The Glass House Mountains are an awe-inspiring natural wonder. The volcanic peaks rise dramatically from the Sunshine Coast landscape overlooking the stunning Pumicestone Passage and tower over a scenic patchwork of pine plantations, bushland and cultivated fields.
Let the magic wash over you as you take a leisurely drive through the Glass House Mountains National Park. Only 40-50 minutes from Bribie Island by car, any time of the year is a great time to bush walk or take a leisurely picnic. Koalas, goannas, echidnas, eastern grey kangaroos, kookaburras, cockatoos and lorikeets and pale headed rosella sightings are a common occurrence within the park.
These mountains guard the southern approach to the Sunshine Coast. There are five in total, with four offering public access for bushwalking and rock climbing, catering for all levels of fitness and experience. The closest lookout at Mt Beerburrum has a 500m paved but steep climb, but the spectacular views over the coastline and countryside make the huffing and puffing of this bushwalk all worthwhile.
