the city and experience farm life
Our Australian native animals live here too. We are mindfully creating a wildlife corridor to help them thrive. Please respect their homes and the peace and quiet.
Entry is free. However, running a farm is not. So we ask visitors to kindly purchase something from our farm shop. There’s plenty of choice, from refreshments to condiments and genuine Aboriginal artworks.
We don’t have onsite toilet facilities (we are working on it). Public facilities are a short drive just up the hill at the Lookout. Go before you arrive ~ you won’t want to leave.
Currently we have limited seating. Picnic rugs are welcome. Next year we are converting our farmhouse into a café with a large covered outdoor dining area, a new farm shop, coffee roastery and toilet facilities.
You can take a
self-guided tour to learn about native and exotic fruit, coffee, and macadamia nuts.
Simply, the best farm visit near Brisbane
At Glasshouse Plantation you can soak in the fresh mountain air in the Australian bush, so close to Brisbane and yet a world away.
When you sit under our mango trees, you’ll have views of Mt Beerwah and Mt Coonowrin. There are photography opportunities abound. Between the free roaming wildlife, native birds, and fruit trees you’ll find an abundance of moments that you will want to capture and share.
Entry is free entry once you purchase something from our shop – you are welcome to enjoy our farm for as long as you have time. We can make you an espresso coffee from 100% Australian grown beans or brew you a locally grown tea, and there are fresh treats to enjoy with it. Our farm shop is stocked with locally made pantry items and other refreshments.
Glasshouse Plantation is the place to visit for walking around in the outdoors without climbing mountains. We are within easy driving distance from Brisbane city, the Sunshine Coast or even the Gold Coast.
So close Brisbane and yet a world away, when you arrive at Glasshouse Plantation you can soak in the fresh farm air and unwind with the orchestra of birdsong in the Australian bush.
Glasshouse Plantation is a unique and authentic Sunshine Coast farm experience.
