Situated in the D'Aguilar Range 620 metres above sea level, Mount Glorious offers welcome relief from the summer heat.

Awake to the sound of whip birds, and relax on the verandah where parrots, rosellas, finches, cockatoos and kookaburras come to feed. At Turkey's Nest over 40 varieties of exotic birds have been sighted, and binoculars and bird identification books are provided for bird watching on site.
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?... less
