Glasshouse Mountains railway station is located on the North Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the town of Glass House Mountains.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1891 as Glass Mountains. It was renamed Glass House Mountains in 1914.[1] The official station name was later changed to Glasshouse Mountains, which differs from the Glass House Mountains after which it was named. Platform 1 has a steel shelter, while platform 2 has a wooden structure.

Services[edit]

Glasshouse Mountains is serviced by Citytrain services to Brisbane, Nambour and Gympie North.[2] To relieve congestion on the single track North Coast line, the rail service is supplemented by a bus service operated by Kangaroo Bus Lines on weekdays between Caboolture and Nambour as route 649.[3]
