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 Gum Cottage (one bedroom - Queen bed), has a full kitchen and a toasty wood combustion heater to relax beside on cool evenings, living and dining areas overlooking the forest, verandah with views, and a large bathroom with relaxing bath.. We take pride in the homely atmosphere, tasteful decor, attention to detail, and the personal touches of flowers, candles and chocolates. It is a special place to relax, unwind and enjoy the tranquillity of nature. Situated in the D’Aguilar Range 620m above sea level, Mt Glorious offers welcome relief from the summer heat (nights can get quite cool even in summer – be sure to pack a jumper). In winter, as mists waft through the rainforest, warm yourself by the fireplace, with a glass of wine, a good book, and of course our complimentary port and chocolates. Massages are available by arrangement. To extend your stay, we may be able to arrange early check-in or late check-out. Please enquire when you book. A porta-cot and high chair are available for hire. More

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

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
From Brisbane – follow either Mt Nebo Rd from The Gap (approx 25km), or Mt Glorious Rd through Samford, to the T-intersection of Mt Nebo and Mt Glorious Roads. 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. Parking is beside your cottage. There is no public transport to Mount Glorious.
