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