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