On the way back to Brisbane to catch our flight to Sydney and on to Alice Springs we did a slight detour to take in the Glass House Mountains - so named by Captain Cook ( this bloke got everywhere ! ! ) as they apparentley resemble the glass kilns in his native N.Yorkshire. We thought it was a more like the set of Jurassic Park ! Had a nice lunch with a view. The heat was unbelievable. Queensland that day was the hottest place in Australia.
