Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Brisbane

Pick up your rental car in the city or at the airport and begin your drive to Glass House Mountains via the Bruce Highway. First stop is at the Australia Zoo to get up close and personal with rare, endangered and much loved Australian animals. Take in an exciting show at the Crocoseum, or enjoy a tour of the Australian Wildlife Hospital.

Superior Glasshouse Mountains Ecolodge

Day 2: Glass House Mountains

A full day today to explore Glass House Mountains, a group of 11 hills that rise abruptly from the coastal plain in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast hinterland. They were named by Captain James Cook in 1770 as the peaks reminded him of the glass furnaces in his home county of Yorkshire. These rugged volcanic peaks that tower above the surrounding landscape are listed on the Queensland National Heritage Register as an area of national significance.

In the afternoon travel north to the Noosa National Park, spotting resident koalas dozing in the trees or find yourself enjoying part of the Noosa Bird Trail at the Mangrove Boardwalk and Weyba Conservation Park to look for exotic birds.

Pat a dingo in a safe controlled environment, feed kangaroos and emus and even cuddle a reptile.
