The Inter-urban Break includes the iconic Glass House Mountains and scenic Ramsar-protected wetlands of the Pumicestone Passage.

It also:

  • covers our forested and agricultural landscapes, which support a large number of land and water-based activities
  • includes large areas of public land which is mostly national park or state forest
  • has cultural and environmental significance
  • is important for tourism and for our economy.

 It is one of the main areas people enjoy outdoor activities in South-East Queensland. People participate in many different types of recreation activities in this area, including:

  • bushwalking
  • climbing
  • four-wheel driving
  • mountain biking
  • fishing
  • trail bike riding.

Many of these activities have different needs. Sometimes the community groups involved in these activities have different views on how the area should be used.

The Inter-urban Break Outdoor Recreation Plan recognises that there are different views that need to be considered in managing recreation activities in this area.

The plan provides public land managers with a guide to work together to protect the natural beauty of the landscape while supporting a range of recreational opportunities in suitable locations.
