Glass House Mountains National Park
These 25-million-year-old cores of extinct volcanoes that give their name to the park pop sharply out of the landscape and are the perfect adventurer’s playground. Have a half-day’s rock climbing, bushwalking and abseiling with Pinnacle Sports, which includes a hike to the summit of Mount Ngungun. Alternatively, head out on your own on some of the spectacular walking tracks through open woodlands and heaths to panoramic lookouts and mountain summits. The Stony Creek day-use area in Bellthorpe Forest Reserve is an exceptionally good, forested picnic area with cascading creeks and a rockpool, and the view from the Glass House Mountains Lookout is a feast on its own, but goes well with a picnic. You can camp at nearby Coochin Creek.
