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.
