Mount Glorious Queensland
Welcome to Mt Glorious, a truly magic little village in the heart of some absolutely breathtaking rainforest situated in the D'Aguilar Range north west of Brisbane City. The main National Park area is Maiala that means 'quiet place' in the dialect of the original aboriginal Kamilaroi people who were the earliest know settlers to the region.
Most visitors are surprised to find the stands of native rainforest so close to Brisbane; tall trees with huge buttresses, palms and ferns as well as the ever present array of tropical birds and parrots; quite an unbelievable place!
The regular motorcyclists all know the wonder of the fantastic roadside splendor of towering rainforest trees, the accompanying mist and cooler crisp climate.
Mount Glorious is a beautiful natural hill top that offers four small cafes, some spectacular forest walks as well as several BBQ areas set in rolling parkland. Quite a remarkable destination that is only 45 minutes from the Brisbane CBD!
Once you have visited you may just want to stay a little bit longer! You'll find some B&B's and the Mount Glorious Get Away Cottages hiding at the end of Brown's Road, through the rainforest, just behind the the Elm Haus. Here you can book a rainforest cottage for just the two of you, or rent the whole property complete with Ranch House and four cottages for that special wedding or conference in the Rainforest setting. A great spot for bird watching as well!
You'll find it all up here in the hills behind Brisbane at Mount Glorious; a lovely twisty drive from Samford or The Gap.
