Mount Tibrogargan • Glass House Mountains National Park • Queensland by 

From Wikipedia :

Mount Tibrogargan is one of the many mountains in the Glass House Mountains National Park, north-northwest of Brisbane, Australia. It is a volcanic plug of hard alkali rhyolite that squeezed up into the vents of an ancient volcano 27 million years ago.

Tibrogargan is one of the most easily recognised mountains in South East Queensland, bearing some resemblance to a gorilla or old man hunched over. However, in 2004 parts of the rock face that resembles the eyes eroded and subsequently crumbled off. The name Tibrogargan comes from the Aboriginal Undanbi words chibur flying squirrel and kaiyathin biting.

In the mythology of the region, Tibrogargan was the father of all the other Glass House Mountains except Beerwah, his wife. It was said that Tibrogargan saw a rising of the waters from the sea, and called to his son Coonowrin to take his mother Beerwah to a safe place; however, Coonowrin failed to do so, and in anger Tibrogargan clubbed Coonowrin and broke his neck.
