Coming down south along the Bruce Highway, after the Noosa Turnoff is the turn to the Glasshouse Mountains.

Its just past the Calundra turnoff towards Beerwah.


If you go through Maleny you get a stunning view as you wind up very steep grades..a bit scary…and then down to Beerwah. You can also turn further south at Beerburrum, which is what I did, and last trip I stayed at the Beerburrm Caravan Park, from where I did day trips. Cost $35 for a powered site. Its a very pleasant Park run by a very attractive gentleman, who I did like. There is also a book exchange here, a pool and the usual facilities.


You get some awesome sunsets from the caravan Park, and there are walks around through cane fields and pineapple plantations, and along the back roads.

I did a few hikes, and in the heat, it was very hot. There were many mosquitoes, so prepare by taking insect repellant and have a hat.


There are a few free camping places..behind the Maleny Showgrounds, and at Landsborough, and at Matthew Flinders Park a rest area 2 km North of Beerburrum.

I intend to stay there sometime. It looked beautiful right in the bush




The lookouts were amazing. There is a 360 degree walk around lookout point, and the nature walk is well worth doing.

The Glasshouse Mountains are less than an hour from Brisbane so it makes a great day trip.

A visit to the Gardens at Maleny are advised. That was a wonderful experience with a natural forest walk through some stunning twisted vines with birds and butterflies in a property bequeathed to tourism by two sisters.


The Australian Bush is at its best in this area, and it is very easy and pleasant hiking through the Natural bush with scenic views of the Mountains.
