Queensland Places says this about Glasshouse Mountains:
The Glass House Mountains are a chain of steep-sided volcanic plugs, extending from Mount Coochin in the north to Mount Beerburrum (near the town of that name) in the south. The chain reaches westwards to Mt Beerwah, and is approximately 65 km north of central Brisbane. The naming of the Glass House Mountains came about from Lieutenant James Cook’s exploration of eastern Australia in 1770. Cook thought that the formations resembled the glass furnace kilns in his native Yorkshire.
Timber cutting was an important early industry in the Glass House Mountains, and in 1890 the North Coast railway line was opened immediately to their east. The village of Glass House Mountains grew around the railway and a State primary school opened in 1910. Toward the end of World War I extensive soldier-settlement orchard blocks were opened up, mainly for pineapples and citrus, with settlement extending south to Beerburrum. Pugh’s Queensland Directory for 1925 recorded Glass House Mountains village as having a storekeeper, a butcher and a fruiterer;
