Glass House Mountains

Let me be your Guide to the Glass House Mountains

Come On Follow Me, there's a lot to see and do.

Mount Ngungun peak, with Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah in the background.

So Where Are These Mountains ? (Map Below)

You will find them in Queensland, Australia, about an hours drive north of Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

The Glass House Mountains area stretches from Beerburrum in the south, north to Mooloolah, west to Peachester and Mount Mellum and east to the Bruce Highway.

It also takes in the towns of Beerwah, Landsborough and Glass House Mountains.

In this guide I might stretch those boundaries a bit but only to highlight areas that have something to do with the mountains.

For example I have included Mountain View Road Maleny as this is one of the best and most popular photo spots to capture the mountains and there is also a very nice cafe at Mary Cairncross Park where you can have your meal outside while looking down at the mountains and the coast.

I will also include areas outside this area where you can take great photos of the mountains, like Bribie Island, Moreton Bay and Caloundra.
