The largest township in the Glass House Mountains area, Beerwah recorded a population of 6,769 people in the 2016 Australian census.

The name Beerwah comes from the aboriginal word birrawaman, with birra meaning sky and wandum meaning climbing up.

Beerwah is located approximately 80 kilometres north of Brisbane, between Glass House Mountains to the south, Peachester to the west and Landsborough to the north. The main road through Beerwah is named after it’s most famous resident, Steve Irwin Way. It was formerly known as the Glass House Mountains Tourist Drive and is accessed by the Bruce Highway, which bypassed the town in 1985.

The golf course, separated from the town by Steve Irwin Way, is a marvellous site in the early morning as wallabies bound through the mist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” bottom_padding=”40″ overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” shape_type=””][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][nectar_gmap zoom=”14″ enable_zoom=”1″ marker_style=”default” marker_animation=”1″ size=”300″ map_center_lat=”-26.857319″ map_center_lng=”152.955167″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
