Description

Relax and forget the pressures of life in a romantic holiday cottage at beautiful Mount Glorious, just 40 kilometres from Brisbane - close to the city yet a world away! Turkey's Nest is nestled in 15 acres of tranquil rainforest. They offer a choice of accommodation from cosy, private one- or two bedroom cottages, to a spacious bed and breakfast suite.

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.

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?
