Glass House Mountains Drives

The many Glass House Mountains Drives take you to the heart of the Glasshouse Mountains.

If you want some spectacular, close up views of the mountains then you just have to get in the car and explore the local back roads.

You can get to the base of a few of the mountains and right up to the Glasshouse Mountains Lookout, which has spectacular views of most of the mountains.

From the lookout you can see Mt Beerburrum, Mt Tunbubudula (The Twins), Mt Miketeebumulgrai, Mt Ngungun, Mt Tibrogargan, Mt Tibberoowuccum, Mt Coonowrin, Mt Beerwah,

These roads will take you through strawberry farms, pineapple farms, macadamia nut farms and a wide variety of other horticulture and agriculture operations.

Even better if you get involved by telling me your story, see the bottom of the page.

Best Roads To View The Mountains Close Up

Steve Irwin Way

This is the main road through the area.

Named after the incomparable "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, son of local icon Bob Irwin.

Along this road you will get a view of all of the mountains except Wild Horse Mt which is on the main highway (Bruce Hwy).

You get a great close up view of Mt Tibrogargan between Beerwah and Glasshouse where you can pull up in a cleared area on the western side of the road to take photos.

Steve Irwin Way is also called Glass House Mountains Tourist Drive

Old Gympie Road

This is the "old" main road through the area, some of which was the Cob and Co route.

Along this scenic and winding road you will get a close up view of Mt Ngungun and Mt Coonowrin and more distant views of Mt Beerwah and Mt Tibrogargan.

This road is in the "heart" of the mountains and is the road you have to use to get to the side roads which then take you to the Lookout and many of the Walking Tracks.

Old Gympie Road is also a great alternative route to get a real feel for the local area with many farms. This road will take you from the Beerburrum area to Mooloolah which will take you through the outskirts of Beerwah and Landsborough.

Gympie Street South is what Old Gympie Road is called at Landsborough near the roundabout.

Barrs Road

This road will take you from Steve Irwin Way to the parking area for the Mt Tibrogargan Walk and Climb and the Trachyte Circuit Walk.
