Glass House Mountains

The Glass House Mountains are a group of eleven hills that rise abruptly from the coastal plain in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast hinterland.

The mountains were named by Captain James Cook in 1770 as the peaks reminded him of the glass furnaces in his home county of Yorkshire. The range was originally formed as molten lava cooled in the cores of volcanoes around 26 million years ago.
