Glass House Mountains National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Captain James Cook saw and named these mountains in 1770. Their prominent peaks tower above the surrounding countryside and make for great adventure climbing. The peaks of Glass House Mountains National Park are all that remain of extinct volcanoes. They are in fact the remains of the lava plugs at the centre of each volcano.

Many bushwalking tracks are available as are picnic areas. Some of the peaks can be climbed and are rated from challenging to moderate.

The three most popular bushwalks/climbs are the Mt Beerwah (556 m) only for the experienced and fit walker. Mt Tibrogargan (364 m) also challenging and Mt Ngungan (253 m) moderate climb.

Other mountains within the park (Mt Coonowrin, Mt Elimbah, Mt Mikeeteebumulgrai, Coochin Hills) are closed to preserve the flora and fauna, there are no walking tracks or directions supplied at these locations. Many rare species of flora are found around the peaks and many native animals make the park their home including Koala's, Goanna, Kangaroo, Echidna, and many native bird species. Please leave domestic animals at home.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
