  • The township of Glass House Mountains, sits amidst the majestic popular tourist destination, the Glass House Mountains, located in the traditional lands of the Aboriginal Gubbi Gubbi people. Named by explorer Captain Cook in 1770, on his epic voyage north on his ship The Endeavour, the Glass House Mountains are said to have reminded him of glass furnace houses back home in Yorkshire. The Glass House Mountains consist of eleven mountains known in Aboriginal language as ‘daki comon’ meaning ‘stone standing up’.
