Located in the hinterlands of the Sunshine Coast Region in Queensland, the rural town of Beerwah is just north of the Glass House Mountains. Beerwah is located just off the motorway, with access via Steve Irwin Way or by taking the Nambour and Gympie North railway line. Australia Zoo in Beerwah is considered one of Australia’s major tourist attractions since it was started by Bob Irwin, father of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.
The area is famous for the stunning Glass House Mountains, formed by volcanic activity. Mount Beerwah is the tallest volcanic plug, which was formed more than 26 million years ago. The area is home to many spectacular walking tracks and lookouts. It is a popular spot for camping, with Coochin Creek in Beerwah State Forest catering to keen fishers as well.
