Woodford, Queensland, Australia

The Glasshouse 50 - Cook's Tour - takes place on or near May 17th every year. This date being the anniversary of Cooks sighting and naming of the Glasshouse Mountains in 1770 - he continued north and named the town of 1770 accordingly. In his journal of that day Cook wrote ‘these hills lie but a little way inland, and not from each other: they are remarkable for the singular form of their elevation, which very much resembles a glass house, and for this reason I called them Glass Houses’, in reference to the foundries in Yorkshire, England.

Starting at Woodford swimming pool, Peterson Rd, Woodford, the 50 mile event heads out once more to Beerburrum before returning to Woodford, taking in the Bracalba Basin loops on the return leg.
