Keith has a wonderful and sincere vision that he has implemented over the last 20 years and is on site and is as energised as the day he started. Amazing philanthropist, so lovely to know there are good people on the planet. The whole complex is a credit to him and a positive voice for the future.

3 night stay....unique place .... trains, gardens and the occasional mosquito. Great place to start walking the glass mountains from. Keith was very helpful. Would recommend this place to our friends and if around the glass mountains again will be back.

The ecolodge was an interesting place with a great story behind it. We booked an Orchard Room, which we felt was decent value for money. The room was neat and well-sized, with a very clean bathroom (towels/soap/shampoo provided). The bed was also comfortable and spacious. Additionally, wifi works very well from the rooms, which is great for checking out what...

A tremendously well thought out ecolodge with impressive attention to detail, staying in this place really does feel like an adventure. As we booked direct through the lodge's website, we received an upgrade from an orchard room to staying in one of the Victorian train carriages. The train carriage has been superbly restored, maintaining its character whilst providing a very...

We stayed at the ecolodge over the weekend. Well worth a stay if you want to get out into the country but not have to travel too far. Bush turkeys and chickens cruising around the place gave it a really relaxing feel. The on-site management Brad and Desylie were spectacular though. Could not have been any friendlier or provided a...

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
