We've had colleagues from Germany visiting, and last weekend we took them on a hike to the Glass House Mountains, on the Sunshine Coast about an hour north of Brisbane. Australians call them mountains, but they're more like hills, since you can easily climb to the top of them in less than an hour. There's half a dozen or so isolated peaks. We climbed to the top of Mount Ngungun, which has a lovely view of the other mountains. More pictures in my galleries.
