Food and Eateries at Mt Glorious
Mt Glorious Village has some great eateries, from the Mt Glorious Café Restaurant – now called Cloverlea Cottage; food with a magnificent view on the very edge of the mountain; Maiala Tea House directly on the main road – the choice of many bike visitors, to the Elm Haus a very eclectic piece of stone and timber architecture a little above the Maiala National Park; there is also Olley's Honey Hut – Coffee in the Rainforest further through the mountain just prior to the Alex Road turnoff on the right hand side heading west at the Summit.
At Maiala National Park and the Summerset Lookout farther north west of the Village you will also find barbeque areas. Continuing further across the range you will come down the steep western side of the mountain through the Northbrook Parkway where Red and White Cedar recreational areas also offer barbeque and toilet facilities. None of these roads are suitable for caravans or larger buses and trucks, they are scenic however the actual road surface has deteriorated considerably over the past five years. You will know when you reach the western side of the mountain as the council area changes. This is denoted by poor road repairs and little interest in managing this scenic route; which is extremely unfortunate.
If you are traveling slower than the speed limit, please pull over and let the other road users past. This is a common courtesy that the local mountain dwellers always observe!
