Posizione Beerburrum, Australia

Distanza Ultramaratona

Informazioni Flinders Tour

The volcanic plugs of the Glass House Mountains rise abruptly from the subtropical plains 20km northwest of Caboolture. In Dreaming legend, these rocky peaks belong to a family of mountain spirits. The explorer James Cook thought the shapes resembled the industrial conical (glass-making) furnaces of his native Yorkshire. It’s worth diverting off the Bruce Hwy onto the slower Steve Irwin Way to snake your way through dense pine forests and green pastureland for a close-up view of these spectacular magma intrusions.

The Glass House Mountains National Park is broken into several sections (all within cooee of Beerwah), with picnic grounds and lookouts but no camping grounds. The peaks are reached by a series of sealed and unsealed roads that head inland from Steve Irwin Way. With that being said, Flinder’s Tour is the place to be.

Matthew Flinders was the first European to climb one of the Glasshouse Mountains (Beerburrum) on this date in 1798.
