Glasshouse Country

Glasshouse Country The original Glass House  Mountains and Glasshouse Country website, covering,  Beerburrum,  Beerwah,  Glasshouse  Mountains, Landsborough, Mooloolah Valley, Peachester. The   area   around   the   Glass   House   Mountains   is   known   locally   as   Glass   House   Country.   The   town itself   is   located   on   the   historical   route   to   the   Gympie   goldfields,   the   track   being   opened   up   and   made traversable   by   the   Cobb   &   Co.   coaching   company   in   the   1860's.   The   township   grew   up   around   the staging   station,   now   an   historic   listed   building   known   as   Bankfoot   House   which   is   open   to   the   public by   appointment. The         staging   yards   opposite   are         still   in   existence   and   a   restored   Cobb   &   Co.   coach can   be   viewed   at   the   museum   located   there.   Known   for   its   rich   volcanic   soil,   it   is      no   surprise   that crops    such    as    Pineapples,    Strawberries,    Avocado,    Macadamia    nuts    and    Lychee    are    grown extensively   in   the   region.   Back   packers   and   fruit   pickers   come   from   all   over   the   world   to   work   here   at harvest   time.   Until   recently   tobacco   was   also   farmed.   Now   one   of   Queensland's   largest   commercial pine   tree   plantations   is   obvious   as   the   traveller   criss-crosses   the   area,   surrounding   the   ancient   peaks of   the   mountains   which   are   sacred   sites         to   the   local   indigenous   traditional   land   owners.   The   whole Sunshine   Coast      region   is   full   of   natural   beauty,   from   the   spectacular   coastline   to   the   inviting hinterland.   We   have   a   good   rail   network,   public   transport   and   2   major   airports   within   an   hour's   drive, making   the   region   easily   accessible   to   the   many   visitors   who   come   here   and   enjoy   our   warm   climate all year round.
