Maleny Views Glasshouse Mountains

Yesterday was a perfect Autumn day and what better way to make the best use of it then to take a little jaunt out into the countryside. This pic is the view from Mary Cairncross Reserve http://www.mary-cairncross.com.au/ at Maleny on the North Coast hinterland. What you're viewing here are the amazing Glasshouse Mountains which are a series of volcanic plugs rising dramatically above the coastal plain. These mountains were named in 1770 by Captain Cook and are thought to have been formed about 26 million years ago.

This is a view I've not seen before even though my parents practically live at the base of one of these mountains. Luckily I thought to bring my camera along.
