To get to the mountain’s summit, visitors can take a short yet steep climb. Be warned that it’s one of the steepest climbs compared to the other Glass House Mountains. The trip is 1.4km return on the 280-metre-high mountain. It begins at the car park, from where you walk through the eucalypt forest then get to a rainforest. From here, the tracks get steeper, but you’ll soon be at the summit. Climbing takes about 40 minutes.

Mount Beerburrum’s trail is accessible all year round. Though the hike can be challenging, it’s worth it for the views! You’ll get to see the other Glass House Mountains, some areas of South East Queensland, and even the Brisbane CBD on a clear day. Remember to descend the fire tower the same way you would with a ladder because doing so in a forward manner can lead to an accident.

The mountain also has lookouts, and bird watching is popular here. Other amenities include toilets and picnic facilities. The mountains are home to an exciting array of plants and animals, including 20 plants known for their conservation significance.

For visitors interested in spending a weekend on the mountain, there are some hotels and parks where you can stay the night. There’s a lot of nature and history to soak up staying here. Some interesting trivia: the Glass House Mountains were named by James Cook, a famous explorer inspired by the glass furnaces in Yorkshire where he came from. Later on, Matthew Flinders explored the area and climbed the mountain in 1799.

Mount Beerburrum promises a great hike and scenic views.
