Glasshouse Mountains

The Glass House Mountains were an easy detour on our drive back to Brisbane from Noosa Heads. Gently rolling plains surrounded the mountains which appeared to poke up randomly from the terrain. It's not really a mountain range, but several volcanic plugs with the surrounding land eroded away.

Sara drove up to the Glass House Mountains Lookout, which gave a great view of the plugs and the surrounding area all the way to the sea. We could see lots of farms and eucalyptus trees, and many of the plugs. Two can be seen behind us in the photograph.
