Steve Irwin Way

Steve Irwin Way, a tribute to the Crocodile Hunter

Steve Irwin Way is a very scenic drive located in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast Region, Queensland, Australia.

The road, part of the State Route 6, is asphalted. It’s 38.0 km long. The road was formerly known as the Glasshouse Mountain Tourist Route. It’s accessed by the Bruce Highway. It’s named after Steve Irwin, in honour of the late Crocodile Hunter. There's an overwhelming number of accidents here.

The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed!  There are many excellent photo opportunities. Don't forget your camera with lots of film/memory, fully charged batteries and an empty memory card! This stunning drive will offer you great views of the Glass House Mountains, which are strange volcanic formations that were the result of lava eruptions approximately 20 million years ago. Make sure you stop for a while and take one of the excellent walking tracks to one of the lookouts, where you can enjoy the gorgeous view over the dramatic mountain landscape.
