Glass House Mountains

The Glass House Mountains Visitor Information Centre in Settlers Rotary Park is a delightful gateway to the Sunshine Coast. The centre is on the way into the township of Glasshouse Mountains and has an interpretive centre for the region providing information about the mountains and national parks. The centre provides a free booking service for accommodation, tours and activities, and also showcases local produce. Enjoy the extensive landscaping with barbecue facilities and playground.

The Glass House Mountains are found in the hinterland of Queensland's Sunshine Coast. They are actually the cores of 20 million year old volcanoes, so that the sides of the volcanoes have eroded away leaving only hardened plugs or rock spires.

The Aboriginal dreaming story about these formations gives each of the mountains a name and character in a family, and tells a dramatic story of human relationships.

Captain James Cook gave the area its unusual English name while sailing past, on his way up Australia's east coast, in 1770. From a distance they reminded him of the glass-making furnaces of his home town in Yorkshire.

There are both sealed and unsealed roads through the Glass House Mountains National Park, with spectacular lookouts over the surrounding plains along the way. An excellent day trip could include a lunch stop at picnic grounds, bush trails and rock-climbing.

The area around the mountains produces many tropical fruits such as avocados, pineapples and papaws as well as strawberries, vegetables, nuts and tobacco.

Visitors can stay in the area at the township of Glass House Mountain, which can be reached in about 20 minutes from Caboolture or 30 minutes from Caloundra. Nearby towns are Beerwah, Beerburrum, Landsborough and Mooloolah.

Distance from Brisbane (State Capital): 64 Kilometres.
