Welcome

The Glass House Mountains offer the visitor an unexpected panorama on more than one level, to look at, absolutely stunning. To climb them opens part two of the experience, to reach the summit is an achievement and is repaid by the spectacular views all the way to the Sunshine Coast.

Mount Beerwah

The    tallest    mountain    of    the    group    at    556m.    An    awesome    and imposing   mountain   to   look   at,   steeped   in   legend   and   embraced   by the   local   Gubbi   Gubbi   people   as   the   Mother   or   Birth   Mountain. The    Gubbi    Gubbi    people    have    a    retreat    at    the    base    of    the mountain   for   Aboriginal   women   and   greatly   revere   the   legend   and the ‘Special Place’ feeling that Mount Beerwah generates.

Extinct Volcanoes  ?

For    a    long    time    the    mountains have    been    referred    to    as    extinct Volcanoes   or   volcanic   plugs.   This   is not    the    case,    new    research    has discovered    that    these    mountains were   below   the   ground   and   are   in fact magma intrusions … More

Open To The Public ?

Most      of      the      mountains      are accessible      to      the      public,      Mt Coonowrin   is   the   exception   to   this as   it   is   deemed   too   dangerous   to climb.   Ngungun   is   the   sixth   tallest of      Mountains   at   253   m.   It’s   has   a well maintained walking trail to top

Are they dangerous ?

Of     course     there     is     danger     in walking/climbing   mountains,   there always    is.    Mt.    Beerwah    is    quite steep in places as is Tibrogargon . Care      and      preparation      and      a reasonable      level      of      fitness      is required for the climbs.
