The Glasshouse mountains in Australia are the subjects of several Aboriginal stories. Coonowrin is said to be the son of Tibrogarten and Beerwah. During a violent storm, Tibrogargan commanded his son to take his mother and siblings to safety. Instead Coonowrin ran off. When his after found him he hit him causing his crooked neck. Tibrogargan was so ashamed of his son, to this day he sits with his back to him.
