Information

The Magic of Mount Glorious

Mount Glorious is a charming little village, surrounded by mountainous views, national parks and rainforest – all just a stone’s throw from Brisbane.

National Parks

Mt Glorous Getaways has direct access to the beautiful D’Aguilar National Park. The cooler mountain climate is ideal for ferns and mosses. Giant barred frogs and spiny crayfish inhabit the mountain streams, while yellow-bellied gliders and short-eared possums are active at night in the tall open forest. The park provides excellent birdwatching opportunities—bowerbirds, wompoo fruit-doves, bell miners and yellow-tailed black-cockatoos can often be seen or heard throughout the forest.

D’Aguilar National is best enjoyed on one of the many walking trails or on a scenic mountain drive easily accessible from Mt Glorious Getaways.

Hiking / Bushwalking

If you love to take in nature’s beauty while taking a walk, you can’t go past Mt Glorious Getaways. With the D’Aguilar National Park’s Maiala Walking Tracks right on our doorstep, you’ll have unprecented access to beautiful sub-tropical rainforest trails.  

Bird Life

Mount Glorious is a prime destination for bird watchers and nature fans thanks to the impressive number of gorgeous native birds that can found in our cool sub-tropical rainforests. See our Bird Life page for details on the species that can be found in the Mount Glorious area.

From booking, arriving, and departing everything was wonderfully smooth. So thank you Mt Glorious Getaways – you were just what we needed and it was very romantic and secluded and we loved it and we will be back!

I stayed in Yellow Robin for 3 nights & I only wish I could have stayed longer. Warm & cosy in the winter months, EVERYTHING was taken care of, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, it is the PERFECT retreat away from the city.

Dominque W. - Trip Advisor

We stayed for 2 nights in the homestead as a group of 8 (2 families). We were very happy with the house, it was soooo spaceous and quiet! The homestead as well as the outside areas were immaculate.

My partner and I had a very relaxing weekend. The cabins are gorgeous, very comfortable and charming. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is exceptionally good value for money, and we will definitely be back. It really is a Glorious Getaway.
