Our History


Where did we come from? GMAN was formed and incorporated in 1992 from a
previous community group, with the main aim being to protect the uniqueness of
the Glasshouse Mountains area.
How do we fit in? GMAN is the major community and environmental group in the Glasshouse Mountains and is affiliated with other similar groups in south east Queensland.
What have we been doing? GMAN has wide support from the local community and has been involved in many community-based issues, including:

  • Local and state planning issues
  • Glasshouse Mountains Trail Runs
  • Various submissions to government departments on management of the area, including the draft management plan for Glass House Mountains National Park
  • Development of walking tracks in the Glass House Mountains

  • Involvement in the rehabilitation of Settlers Rotary Park and Page Street Bushland Park
  • The recording and identification of local flora
  • Education of the community on environmental issues
  • Protection of vulnerable species, for example the peregrine falcon and rare Glass House Mountains flora, along with the recovery of the Richmond birdwing butterfly
