Glass House Mountains (also spelled Glasshouse Mountains) is a hinterland town of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, named after the famous Glass House Mountains of the area.

The mountains were named by explorer Captain James Cook on 17 May, 1770. The peaks reminded him of the glass furnaces in his home county of Yorkshire. Matthew Flinders explored the area and climbed Mount Beerburrum after sailing along Pumicestone Passage in 1799.
