The Glass House Mountains boast endless trails of all lengths and difficulties. For prime mountain panoramas, go for a walk along the Glass House Mountains Lookout Circuit. This trail is quite steep in some areas, but is relatively short and leads to a scenic viewing platform.

A longer but relatively flat trail is the 6 km Trachyte Circuit, which provides some of the best views views of Mt Tibrogargan and Mt Tibberoowuccum, both of which also have tracks to their summits.

If you’d rather take in the mountains’ beauty by car, opt for the Blackall Range Tourist Drive, a 55 km ride that passes by fields of pineapple, avocado and macadamia farms, where you can usually buy fresh produce from roadside stands. As for views, you’ll be able to see all the way to the ocean in some places.
