Situated in Brisbane's closest rainforest, only 45 minutes from the city and at an altitude of 680 metres is Mt Glorious Getaway Cottages and Conference Centre. The cottages have been built with every comfort in mind and all have views through the rainforest to Moreton Island.
This is the perfect place to really relax and enjoy the absolute peace and seclusion offered. All the cottages have full cooking facilities and a fireplace to keep you warm on the chilly nights which are a feature of this mountain paradise. You'll love the tranquility and magical feel of this special place.
This is a birder's paradise and you are sure to see all the birds common to this area as well as some of the rarer species. For those who are more active, there are extensive walking tracks in the adjoining Maiala National Park. There is also a small conference room suitable for groups of up to 25 as well as a wonderful 'rainforest amphitheatre' which is perfect for marquee weddings or other functions....
Relax and forget the pressures of life in a romantic holiday cottage at beautiful Mount Glorious, just 40 minutes from Brisbane - close to the city yet a world away! Turkey's Nest is nestled in 15 acres of tranquil rainforest. Choose between the two cosy private cottages, each nestled among the trees on the edge of the forest, or a spacious private suite with forest views.
Mt Glorious is well named. Situated in the D'Aguilar Range 620 metres above sea level, Mount Glorious offers welcome relief from the summer heat. In winter, as mists waft through the rainforest, warm yourself by the fireplace, with a glass of wine, a good book, a selection of games and, of course, complimentary port and chocolates.
For wildlife enthusiasts, Mt Glorious offers the opportunity to see beautiful native wildlife up close. Relax on the veranda where a wide variety of native birds come to feed. In surrounding areas you may see pademelons (small wallabies), echidnas, or koalas.
There are numerous bush walks in the area, from short strolls to long hikes. Follow up with coffee at a local cafe, and then enhance the mood with a massage. How much more relaxing can it get?...
