A pretty stunning National Park with great views from a distance and several different perspectives close up.
There are several walks around the Glass House Mountains National Park. Be aware, a few are easy however, most are moderate and some much more difficult and mainly being for rock climbing/ abseiling.
They are spread out over large area from Elimbah (north of Caboolture) all the way up to Beerwah.
The walk along the Mount Ngungun Summit track being one of the easiest ones.
You could easily spend several days just here in this region if you really wanted to.

Beautiful NP with plenty of walks for all ages and fitness.
Unless you are experienced with climbing, stick to the walking trails or Ngungun.
So many rescues at Tibro and Beerwah with serious injuries as these are not WALKS.
You need to be experienced, be very comfortable with heights and exposure with adequate water.
Do not attempt in Wet or Dark for you and the rescue teams safety.

My wife and I climbed Mt. Ngungun today and found the track improved since our first ascent in 2010. It took us about 25 minutes without pushing hard. As the weather was clear we were able to enjoy the fabulous 360' views from the summit and took some great photos. Highly recommended to any visitor or resident of the Sunshine Coast

Trachyte circuit- great views, stunning track, however the signs for where to go weren’t great. We got lost and had to look up where to go. We weren’t able to complete the track due to the lack to proper signs.

Well I really don't know where to start.....the mozzies are attrocious due to the stagnant water dam, the amenities have good water pressure but need a bloody good clean and the fire pit area needs serious attention. However, our most lasting impression....as members of a 4wd camping group who support many sites is the ill mannered and forgetful manager who berated a multitude of guests and harassed a multitude of guests to see if they had booked in and paid AFTER they had done so hours before. I cannot say that we or any of the other 40 or so people we were with will be back. I am sure that this post will be deleted but I will also be leaving this on true local and other review sites to forewarn others. Thumbs down.

Can no longer drive to the base of lookout. This is a very steep walk (although short) up the side of Wild Horse Mountain so definitely be prepared. Upon reaching the lookout great views of both the northern and southern coasts and out to the bay. I have driven past this Lookout for many years and wish I had been to this lookout sooner. The western views looking over the glasshouse mountains were great.

Inside the lookout are many information boards, interesting history.

We went there driving from sunshine coast.
The lookout point Maleny gives better view since its even more higher than the glasshouse mountain lookout and also the drive along mountain to Maleny is better.
Then there is a guided rainforest tour in Maleny for about 2 kms which has old trees aged 500yrs or more which is very interesting.

Just skip glasshouse mountain lookout and go to Maleny straight away.

Mt Tibrogargan is my favourite mountain to climb. Although it isn't far - it is challenging with some vertical cliff faces to climb. Amazing views from the top. We spent over an hour just sitting at the top - plenty of photo opportunities with Mts in the background. Toilets are onsite near the car park.

Mt Beerburrum is only 1.4km return but it is one steep pathway to the top. Worth taking a water bottle and take it slow. It took us over 15 mins to walk to the top as we kept stopping for a breather!
There are no toilets on site.

Mt Ngungun took us 20 mins to the top and 15 mins down. There is plenty of stuff to look at along the way including a spectacular cave.
There are some amazing photo opportunities from the top. We spent roughly an hour at the top and only can down because we got hungry.
There are no toilets at the bottom of the mountain.

Mt Beerwah is currently closed and we were unable to climb it. There is a nice Punic area and toilets at the bottom.

My family and I spend a lot of time hiking and climbing the glasshouse mountains and theres plenty of options.

For low fitness levels or those with little to no hiking and climbing experience mount beerburrum is a great place to start. Mum and I made it up there carrying a baby each with 5-9 year olds in toe. Definitely a good one for the kids. Mt Ngungun is also another good option for this.

For those with higher fitness levels and a little confidence and experience, mount tub is definitely amazing. Its great for a full body experience so don't worry if your legs get sore, you can use your arms too. (my knees dislocate and I have no trouble climbing mount Tib). If you have no experience at all, you could probably still get up the mountain, just make sure you do it in a group and be confident!

The biggest and best mountain in my opinion is Mount Beerwah. Its definitely one for experienced climbers as the slope is steep and is more of a climb or scramble than a hike. I would definitely not take children up mount beerwah. I would also not go up if you have never hiked or climbed before or have a very low fitness level.

For experienced climbers however, Mt Beerwah is a dream! its mostly smooth sandstone so wear shoes with good grip (or go barefoot). The view at the top is definitely worth the gruelling climb with 360 degree views as far as the eye can see. Most rewarding climb ever!
