The Glass House Mountains are iconic to the Sunshine Coast, and you can even see them from high points in Brisbane, for example, from the summit of Clear Mountain.
A few years ago, we climbed Mt Ngungun with the kids, but we never knew about the beautiful Glass House Mountains Lookout nearby until recently.

Glass House Mountains Lookout is a lovely spot, about 1 hour drive north of Brisbane in the Beerburrum West State Forest. Pine trees plantations stretch out in neat rows, interrupted by volcanic peaks and eucalypt forests. It’s so beautiful! Have a look!
