Indicative Rate * AU$150 to AU$215

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.

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?
