  Caption: Mt Beerwah and Mt Coonwrin, Glasshouse Mountains QLD Mount Beerwah is the highest of the ten volcanic plugs in the Glass House Mountains range, 22Ękm north of Caboolture in South East Queensland, Australia. It was formed 26 million years ago during the tertiary period. Mount Beerwah has two peaks, the taller of which is 556 metres high. It is one of the most visually prominent mountains in south-east Queensland. Its name comes from the Dungidau language words "birra, or "sky," and "wandum," "climbing up." The mountains are the subjects of several Aboriginal tales and Coonowrin is said to be the son of Tibrogargan and Beerwah. During a violent storm, Tibrogargan commanded his son Coonowrin to take his mother Beerwah and his siblings and help them move to safety. Being scared of the storm, Coonowrin instead ran off and when his father found him he hit him on the back of the head, resulting in Coonowrin's crooked neck. Tibrogargan was so ashamed of his son's cowardice that to this day he sits with his back to Coonowrin.
