Glass House Mountains

Gala mode.
Glass House Mountains National Park is a national park in Queensland (Australia), 70 km (43 mi) north of Brisbane. It consists of a flat plain punctuated by rhyolite and trachyte volcanic plugs, the cores of extinct volcanoes that formed 27 million to 26 million years ago.[1][2] The mountains would once have had pyroclastic exteriors, but these have eroded away.
