Romantic Rainforest Cottage 40 min from city

Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Mount Glorious, Queensland
Turkey’s Nest Rainforest Cottages at Mt Glorious is a perfect retreat from the bustle of city life, close to the city, yet a world away. Adjacent to D'Aguilar National Park, Turkey's Nest is a registered Wildlife Refuge, and we unfortunately cannot allow pets.

Relax in your private cottage with a cosy wood fire, views to the rainforest, and birds visiting your verandah. Take a rainforest walk, stop at the local cafe, then back to your cottage for a massage, reading a book, a long soak in the bath, sipping wine, a romantic candlelit meal, port and chocolates - how much more relaxing can it get?

Nestled in 15 acres of tranquil rainforest just 45km north-west of Brisbane, Turkey’s Nest offers an authentic, rustic atmosphere, yet includes all modern conveniences for a truly relaxing bush getaway.

Ideal for a romantic escape, Rose...

We are repeat visitors to White Gum cottage and love it. The vista into the tree canopy on a rainy long weekend was superb. Delicious soup in front of the fire, good wine and top rate choccie fudge. Had we died and gone to heaven?...More

Map
About the neighbourhood
Turkey's Nest is just 40km (65 miles) from Brisbane city, yet is situated in a relaxing forest setting, surrounded by D'Aguilar National Park. Our cool mountain climate makes it refreshingly cooler (approx 6 deg) than Brisbane in summer, and delightfully cold and misty in winter. The village of Mount Glorious features a restaurant and several cafes, a sculpture garden, and numerous walking tracks through the National Park.

How to get there

Continue another 2km along Mt Glorious Rd to the “Mt Glorious Village” sign. Turkey’s Nest is 300 metres on your right. Note: the name Parkview Avenue which appears on some maps/GPS is no longer used. It is all Mount Glorious Rd. We can provide directions from other locations - please ask.
