||The Glasshouse Mountains are situated about 65 km north of Brisbane and are plainly visible from the Bruce Highway. To access the Glasshouse Mountains Township from Brisbane, take the signposted ‘Glasshouse Mountains Tourist Route’ off the Bruce Highway and follow the signs to the Glasshouse Township. The directions to the respective mountains are given below. Please note, the parking spots at the base of the mountains are known to have regular and ongoing problems with break-ins with cars left for the day. It is not recommended that you leave any valuables in your car, so plan to leave an empty car and carry everything with you, especially wallets and cameras.
A passenger train also runs regularly through the Glasshouse area and takes approximately one hour from Brisbane. Alight at Beerburrum Station for Tibrogargan (45 minute walk), and Glasshouse Station for Ngungun and Coonowrin (20 and 45 minute walk respectively).
After taking the Glasshouse Mountains Tourist Route off the Bruce Highway, drive for about 6.5 km to a L turn marked 'Forestry Nursery' (before reaching the turn-off for the Glasshouse Township). Take it. Drive under the bridge, then up and along the dirt track past the nursery, then take the signposted L-turn towards the mountain (sandy dirt track). You'll pass at least one brown and yellow National Park sign saying ‘Mt Tibrogargan’ before reaching a car park. A path leads to the east face from the warning sign.
Entering the Glasshouse Township, turn L at the first intersection, drive over the railway line and turn L into Coonowrin Road at the T-junction. Drive along this for 1 km until past the school, where you veer R onto Fullertons Road. A further 1.3 km will see you at the signposted car park (with tap). Follow the well-worn path for about five minutes to encounter the Lower Cliffs.
Entering the Glasshouse Township, turn L at the first intersection, drive over the railway line and turn L into Coonowrin Road at the T-junction. Follow Coonowrin Road for approx 3.5 km to another T-junction. Turn R into Old Gympie Road and continue for 800 m, then turn L into Fullertons Road. Another 1 km along this road brings you to the National Park carpark, a total of 5.8 km from Glasshouse Township.

Turn L into Old Gympie Road, then take the next R (signposted) and follow the Beerwah National Park signs to the Beerwah car park, approximately 9.7 km from Glasshouse Township. A short walk will bring you to the picnic shed with a wood BBQ, toilet and water tank (often empty during dry periods). There is a good walking track to the base of the mountain and a rough bush track along the base of the rock apron to both east and west faces.
Turn L off the main Glasshouse road at the Rest Area (marked 'Forestry Nursery') as for Tibrogargan. At the railway bridge, turn L and follow Caves Road (signposted) for 2.5km to the Tibberoowuccum turn off, but don't take it. Continue for 500m and park off the road. Walk L through a small swathe of pine trees, then trend up parallel to road for 50m or so, then head further into the scrub (away from the road) along flat ground. Locate the two hills. Your goal is to walk south into the valley between them until spotting Dwarfland high up on the R hill (not the first rock you see down low). Walking time 15 minutes.
