You can climb, scale, walk around or simply gaze at them from the front entrance of the Ecolodge.

Walking tracks of the Glasshouse Mountains start at the front entrance of the Ecolodge. The Ecolodge has two short self guided walks on the property - The Orchard Walk amongst the 60 tropical and exotic fruits. Taste and smell the fruits and nuts in season. It is all yours to enjoy.
The Bush Tucker Walk meanders through the rainforest and creek area.
2 National Parks walks start 400 metres from the entrance of the Ecolodge. Take a packed lunch and off you go!
The Glasshouse Mountains Lookout (located only a few kilometres from the Ecolodge) is a popular spot for a picnic, BBQ or a sunset drink. Spectacular views of the volcanic plugs and surrounding plains to the sea inspire any one.
The Ecolodge has identified over 55 species of birds on the property. Our Bird identification book allows you to record your sightings. Binoculars are provided. Our library also carries a range of bird and local wildlife books.
Another wonderful activity is planting a tree. The owners first started planting trees on the site in 1982 and have now replaced a previous mono-cultured pineapple farm with a bird and wildlife retreat. To date guests have helped plant hundreds of trees and vines on the property and in doing so have helped offset their own carbon emissions. So rather than click onto someone else's carbon credit website why not plant a tree as part of your holiday experience. All funds raised are donated to local environment group's tree planting activities.
For the adventurous - get the blood rushing! Go on one of our Ecolodge adventures - abseiling, climbing, skydiving, kayaking, or hot air ballooning. The Ecolodge uses a variety of local operators to conduct these tours. All begin within 30 minutes of the Ecolodge.
Visit Australia Zoo - only 10 minutes drive from the Zoo. Pre-purchase your tickets upon arrival at the Ecolodge and avoid the entrance queues by using a priority access.
The Sunshine Coast is famous for its beaches and only half an hour drive faway. Learn to surfboard. What great fun to do with your children!
