"Queensland's Most Scenic
The Glasshouse Mountains, named by
Captain James Cook in 1770, are a series of 13 breath taking volcanic
peaks which jut out from the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, providing a spectacular
backdrop to the Sunshine Coast.
It is believed that the cause of these peaks was from the melting of
crust above a 'hot spot' in the mantle below.
Seven of these volcanic
mountains are situated within the Glasshouse Mountains National Park,
and home to many protected wildlife and plants species. When staying
at our Holiday Village you get to experience living amongst these
mountains with some magnificent views.
If you're ready for a climbing
adventure, you can enjoy the mountains close up, but be sure to
check out the literature on each mountain first and choose one to suit your
own fitness level. We can also book you on an organised rock
climbing and abseiling adventure. There are also many picturesque lookouts for
great photographs, situated not far from us, along the Glasshouse Mountains scenic
