Mount Beerwah

Glass House Mountains, Sunshine Coast Area

Mount Beerwah is the highest of the 10 volcanic plugs that make up the Glass House Mountains. It has two peaks, the taller of which is 556 metres high making it one of the most visually prominent mountains in south-east Queensland. The north face of the mountain features a dramatic, inward leaning cliff face known as the Organ Pipes. At its base are a number of small caves.

Only fit and experienced climbers should attempt to reach the summit. It’s a 2.6 kilometre return journey and it will take at least three to four hours. Climbers should plan on taking at least two to three litres of water per person for the journey. Always take another person with you and make sure you let people know where you’re going and what time they can expect you back.

Access the climbing trail via the picnic area. The route takes you through wet eucalypt forest before opening up into heath, dotted with grass trees and banksias, as you climb towards the summit. At the summit you are rewarded with stunning 360 degree views of the coast, other Glass House peaks and the D’Aguilar Range to the west.
