Beerburrum

When travelling to the Sunshine Coast, take a short detour off the Bruce Highway to Beerburrum. The township offers visitors a chance to soak up more than 80 years of local history - thanks to the town's World War I Interpretive Signage. The signage, including old photographs, recognises Beerburrum's involvement in the soldier settlement scheme for Diggers who served in World War I. Around 500 blocks of land were allocated to returned servicemen, and 437 took up the offer and laid the foundation for the early growth of the towns along the rail corridor north from Brisbane. Don't miss Anzac Avenue and the Avenue of Trees planted in 1920. Signage information is also to be found nearby at Beerburrum State School, and the old Beerburrum Hospital.

Beerburrum marks the start of the area surrounding the Glass House Mountains National Park and the many lookouts and walking trails to enjoy.

Beerburrum: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Anzac Avenue Memorial Trees, Beerburrum


Beerburrum, off Steve Irwin Way, was the first and largest of about 24 soldier settlements established in Queensland to help returned soldiers re-enter civilian life as farmers.

The Governor's wife Lady Goold-Adams drew the first land ballot on 6 November 1916. More than 21,000 hectares of farming land was made available for pineapple growing, other horticulture, bee-keeping and poultry.

Over the course of the scheme, which ran until 1929, about 400 soldiers and their families tried their luck farming at Beerburrum. Poor soil and low prices made it financially tough for the former diggers. By 1929, only 69 soldier settlers remained.

In May 1920, General Sir William Birdwood, described by some historians as 'the soul of ANZAC', planted a camphor laurel tree in what he named ANZAC Avenue. School children planted more trees to create an avenue, in time for a visit to the settlement by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) in August that year.

Unlike other memorial avenues in which a tree symbolised a specific fallen soldier (often bearing a name plate), Beerburrum's trees were in memory of 'lost mates'.

Today, only 13 trees from the WWI memorial survive.

Glass House Mountains National Park


They're one of the most quintessential landmarks on the Sunshine Coast - eleven peaks that rise dramatically from the coastal plains. Their beauty caught the attention of Captain James Cook in 1770 who named them the Glass House Mountains because they reminded him of glass furnaces back in Yorkshire. Formed over 26 million years ago, these volcanic plugs are spiritually significant to the local Aboriginal people and are listed on the Queensland and National Heritage Registers as a landscape of national significance.

The peaks are known as Mount Beerburrum, Mount Beerwah, Mount Coochin, Mount Coonowrin (Crookneck), Mount Elimbah (The Saddleback), Mount Ngungun, Mount Tibberoowuccum, Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Tunbubudla (The Twins), Wild Horse Mountain (Round Mountain) and Mount Miketeebumulgrai.

Remnants of open eucalypt woodland and heath vegetation can be found in the park which is home to a variety of animals and plants.

For great views, head to the lookout in Beerburrum State Forest or take on one of the peaks. There are a range of walking trails, ranging in difficulty, that can be found in various locations throughout the National Park. The summit routes on Mounts Ngungun and Tibrogargan are also suitable for roped sports for experienced and well-equipped climbers.

There is something for everyone at the Village. Train rides for the kids; historic homes and furnishings for Mum; antique machinery, cars and tractors for Dad; a rainforest garden for keen horticulturalists and hours of reminiscing for older generations.

See demonstrations of historical skills such as the village blacksmith, wood crafting and others. Wash this down with refreshments from the modern cafe, old fashioned tea rooms or bring a picnic and the Village is a wonderful budget day out only 50 minutes from Brisbane. The perfect stopover on the way to the Sunshine Coast.

The Village is only two kilometres north of the Caboolture Central Business District. There is a free shuttle bus that can be booked by phoning the Village and will pick up passengers from the Caboolture Railway Station. Because of the size of the Village it is recommended that at least three hours is taken to really enjoy the collection and grounds.

Wild Horse Mountain Lookout


Wild Horse Mountain Lookout stands out against the skyline as one drives north. The turnoff is located 30 kilometres north of Brisbane just off the Bruce Highway near Caboolture . Named after the wild brumbies which roamed the area, Wild horse Mountain stands 123 metres above sea level. Telstra and the Department of Primary Industries jointly provided this wonderful and informative viewing and fire tower platform.

Walk the steep 700 metres paved uphill pathway and when you reach the top be rewarded with breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views across Pumicestone Passage and Bribie and Moreton Islands. The forest stretches below as a sea of green and the unique shape of the Glasshouse Mountains stretches across the horizon. On a clear day you can see to Brisbane. Interpretive boards inform the visitor of the features of the surrounding area, and this is a great spot to take a rest and soak up the view before the leisurely (but steep) stroll back down to the car park. Take your belongings with you and a bottle of water!
