Location Map


Nestled in 15 acres of tranquil rainforest just 45km north-west of Brisbane, Turkey's Nest Rainforest Cottages is a perfect retreat from the bustle of city life, close to the city, yet a world away

You will feel the cares of everyday life slip away as you settle into your private, cosy cottage nestled on the edge of the rainforest.

Newly built in 2011, Rose Gum Cottage has been lovingly created with hand-made details and warm wood finishes, but with all the modern necessities you require. Totally private, it nestles into the bush at the edge of the rainforest.

The view from every room is perfectly tranquil and the verandah could not be more relaxing, a place to enjoy the rainforest and the visiting native birds some of which will eat from your hand. Cook up a feast in the well-equipped kitchen, which includes an espresso coffee machine. A comfy lounge is the place to sit by the fire, listen to music, play a game of Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit, drink wine, read a good book and chat., before retiring to a bed warmed by an electric blanket.

The cosy attic bedroom, spacious bathroom with claw foot bath looking out to the forest, and wood combustion fireplace make this an ideal couple's retreat.

We provide all the comforts for a romantic stay, including electric blankets for those chilly winter nights, port and chocolates, fresh flowers, music, and a selection of books and games, and an espresso coffee machine.

Note that the additional day bed in the bedroom is suitable for a small child to approximately 9 years. We can also provide a blow-up bed for an additional adult. Additional charges apply.

Turkey's Nest is a wildlife refuge, registered under the Land for Wildlife scheme, and as such we cannot accept pets.

While Brisbane swelters in summer heat, Mount Glorious 620m above sea level and surrounded by D'Aguilar National Park is pleasantly cool be sure to bring a jumper, as temperatures average 6 degrees less than Brisbane at all times. On chilly winter nights, as mists waft through the forest, relax by a cosy fireplace, where you'll find a CD player and range of CDs, ipod docking station, a selection of books and games, complimentary port and home-made chocolates.

A short stroll to the tranquil village of Mt. Glorious offers bush walking in the rainforest of D'Aguilar National Park, three cafes, a quality restaurant with stunning views over the valley below, and a unique sculpture garden.

Turkey's Nest is a place to relax, unwind and enjoy the tranquility in the company of someone special.

To extend the experience, we may be able to arrange early check-in or late check-out subject to other bookings. Please enquire when you book.

Massages are available with local operators by prior arrangement. How much more relaxing can it get?
