Some of the mountains included in these images are Mount Beerwah, Mount Coonowrin (‘Crookneck’), Mount Ngungun, Mount Tibrogargan, and Mount Tunbubudla (‘The Twins’).

The view from Mount Ngungun – the Glasshouse Mountains, Queensland.

The 360 degree view afforded from the top of Mt. Ngungun is fascinating – the 2.8 km (return) hike up is well worth including in your plans.

These are some of the volcanic plugs (remnants of volcanic activity that occurred 25-27 million years ago), known as the Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. These two are, from nearest to furthest, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah, as seen from Mount Ngungun.

Fire in the sky – the Glasshouse Mountains, Queensland.
