Australian Memories – The Glass House Mountains


The Glass House Mts. are some very interesting looking, very large hills north of Brisbane near the Sunshine Coast of Australia.  These mountains (so-called) are lava plugs that formed in volcanic openings. 

You can see the area where we were staying in the far distance between these two hills.

Someone had created these pretty mosaics of the mountains in the sidewalk at the lookout where we were. 

You may remember my post on our Devonshire tea experience at the Lookout Café from this same day.  The café was located several miles from the lookout where we stopped.  Just for perspective, here is one of the peaks as viewed from the café’s dining area.

Notice the mango grove in the foreground.  It was in bloom and so lovely.


  1. It's been a long time since I visited those mountains, lovely photos.

    1. Thank you, Jo. They are amazing. It was a very nice outing for us all that day. :-)
