About an hour’s drive north of Brisbane are the confines of Glass House Mountains National Park. Relatively new, this park encapsulates a number of low-lying (but impressive) volcanic peaks that sit above a series of meadows and eucalyptus and pine forests. Two of the peaks, Mount Beerburrum and Mount Tibrogargan, have lookouts that provide superlative views of the surrounding land. Any of the walks or climbs are accessible as a half to full day trip, while the only camping in the area can be found at Coochin Creek, which is part of the Beerburrum State Forest. For further information, consult the included park website.
