The craggy peaks of the Glass House Mountains tower above the surrounding landscape. They are so significant that they are listed on the Queensland and National Heritage Register as a landscape of national significance.

Walking tracks lead through a variety of open forests to lookouts with panoramic views of the mountains. You can walk around the base of Mount Tibrogargan to see its profile from many angles and to the top of Mount Ngungun for spectacular views of nearby peaks and the surrounding landscape.

The Yul-yan-man track is accessible from Beerburrum and Tibrogargan trailheads. It offers a Grade 5 walk for people with rock scrambling skills.

There are other challenging summit routes and climbing sites for experienced rockclimbers and abseilers.

Location

About 70km, or a one hour drive, north of Brisbane.
