Our family of 4 spent 2 nights here recently while visiting Queensland. The setting is beautiful and quite relaxing. The kids especially liked the nearby forest. We paid for the morning breakfast (you could prepare your own in the railway kitchen) and it was money well-spent. The surroundings in the morning (we get up early) were very peaceful and it...

I love this place. Jenny, the host, couldn't be more helpful. She showed us around the property giving us insight into the plants and surroundings, showed us some places on the map we could go trekking, and was kind enough to book a kayaking trip (blue water) for us when we asked about it. The room is beautiful, with wooden...

Stopped one night at Ecolodge and enjoyed the experience apart from the mozzies! Quirky place with recycling as the theme ( which we thoroughly endorse) in a beautiful setting. Jenny and Terry were most helpful with Jenny advising on walks and things to do and Terry providing the breakfast. Some reviewers have said that the B/F was expensive at $12/pp,...

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. I believe the breakfast is also great value and with such a lovely gentleman serving you as well. The mossies were bad the time you were here, just after we'd had quite a bit of rain. Will have to look into that air conditioner. It was a shame you...

Took friends from Paris to stay with us there we all love the character, originality, great style and very comfortable carriages that we booked I highly recommend them for 'a surprise in the bush' get away as it is so different accomodation. The carriages have been very well, beautifully refurnished.

We stayed in this place just for one night for its very convenient location near Australia Zoo and it was a very pleasant surprise. The owners have made this a very beautiful, special and relaxing place where you could also spend more nights, just to chill out. Great facilities to cook your meals, but they also serve a nice breakfast....

Glass House Mountains Ecolodge is a lovely place to stay, a green island surrounded by beautiful gardens and visited by different birds all the time. The option of being able to cook in their community kitchen was a plus. Will recommend to friends!!

This little operation is a great place to stop on a trip to the Australian Zoo or for a circumambulation of Mount Tibrogargan (a short walk from the lodge). Terry and Jenny were fantastic hosts. I stayed there twice; once coming from Brisbane and once returning to Brisbane from points north in Queensland.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of a National Heritage treasure, the Glasshouse Mountains Ecolodge offers a unique ecological experience of this fascinating area of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in South East Queensland. It makes a fantastic base from which to explore the 26 million year old volcanic plugs that make up this incredible landscape, as well as the coastal beaches and hinterland villages. During your stay at the Ecolodge (set on 5 acres of orchard and forest beside a small creek) you can discover bush tucker, enjoy nocturnal frog spotting and bird watching (over 60 different types of birds have been seen). A great place to relax and unwind in this peaceful and quiet nature haven with its birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and even kangaroos. National park walks start 400 metres from the front entrance. Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo is just 10 minutes away and the Ecolodge is only an hour north of Brisbane. ... more   less
