Bird watching at Mt Glorious Getaways

You’ll enjoy our small, friendly mountain retreat, and, most importantly, the excitement of birding in one of the world’s most secluded and beautiful places.

Easily seen around the resort are Honeyeaters, Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo’s, King Parrots, and  Crimson Rosellas, with Kingfishers, Bee-eaters, Wrens, Robins and many others all nesting around the resort.

Enjoy the misty green heights of Mt Glorious, habitat of many endemic and sought-after species such as; the Rose Crowned Fruit Dove, Powerful Owl and Wompoo Fruit Doves, all while residing in pristine & private Rainforest cottages.

If you are looking for an unforgettable birdwatching holiday, you will love Mt Glorious Getaways. Guests  travel 1 kilometre through national forest to reach our front gate. Our close proximity to Maiala, Manorina,  Boombana  & D’Aguilar National Parks has resulted in a diverse range of bird species.

Mt Glorious is large enough to have developed its own unique rainforest ecology. There are hundreds of species of birds, including the shy and beautifully coloured Regent Bower and the Paradise Rifle Bird, whose unique call & elaborate dance antics lends hours of wonderful entertainment to the avid Bird Watcher.
