Sunset over the Glass House Mountains

The Glass House Mountains National Park is located in Queensland, Australia, approximately 70 km north of Brisbane in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. They were named by Captain Cook, who in 1770 thought they looked like glass houses as he sailed past along the coast of Australia. The region consists of a flat plain punctuated by volcanic plugs, the cores of extinct volcanoes that formed 25 million to 27 million years ago.
