This little operation is a great place to stop on a trip to the Australian Zoo or for a circumambulation of Mount Tibrogargan (a short walk from the lodge). Terry and Jenny were fantastic hosts. I stayed there twice; once coming from Brisbane and once returning to Brisbane from points north in Queensland.

Thank you so much for your review. The walks, especially around Mt Tibrogargin are certainly worth doing. It was lovely having you stay with us twice. The guests we have staying here are the friendliest, nicest people I have ever encountered in all our years of hospitality. Kind Regards, Terry and Jenny

Had an amazing time at Ecolodge. We booked on the Thursday night for the weekend and got the last room available. So just got in. Was a great experience from the moment we got there.

Keith,Terry and Jenny are genuine authentic people who achieve an ecologically sound experience. The commitment to living and holidaying with the earth and the beautiful surrounds they're situated in is great. No, there's no TV and that's great. Nestled up close with Tibrogargan the 8000 trees that have already been planted continue to grow as guests are invited to plant...

Chose this place because it was walking distance to the volcanic peaks-glasshouse Mountains. Lovely garden setting with fruit trees (some I never heard of) all around the place. They grow coffee but none for sale at the moment but was able to see how they harvested it. Our room 3 was an orchard room which we booked direct with a...

Thanks for your review. There is so much to do with all the walking tracks, the close proximity of Australia Zoo and drives up into the Hinterland.

Thank you for your review.

I was looking forward to my visit, having had a particularly stressful time with work. The quirky nature of the Eco-Lodge really fit the bill for me. I stayed in one of the Orchard rooms with the Queen beds. Sitting out on the deck with the sun on my back and Mt Tibrogargan in front of me was truly pleasurable,...

We stumbled upon this place by accident searching for accommodation near the Medieval Festival. Everything was booked out and now I think it was divine intervention that lead us to the Ecolodge.

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
