Flying visit to Bribie Island yesterday. Extra pics in comments.

Ferryman Cruises on the Pumicestone Passage at Bribie Island. Backdrop of the Glass House Mountains, Mt Tibrogargan 364m, Mt Beerwah 556m, Mt Coorowrin 377m . View from Bribie Island.

The Glass House Mountains were named by Lieutenant Captain James Cook in 1770. In The Genesis of Queensland (1888), the following extract from Cook's journal on Thursday, 17 May 1770 noted:

'These hills lie but a little way inland, and not far from each other, they are remarkable for the singular form of their elevation, which very much resembles a glasshouse for this reason I called them the Glass Houses...'

Craggy volcanic peaks tower above pine plantations, eucalypt forests and open fields. Walking tracks, ranging from easy to very challenging, lead to peaks and lookouts offering panoramic views.
