Mount Glorious

Locality (Unbounded)

Glorious by name, glorious by nature. Tenderly embraced by lush rainforest, the endearing mountain hamlet of Mount Glorious is just 45 minutes drive from Brisbane on the magnificent D’Aguilar Range.

Accessed by a winding mountain road, the tiny village is surrounded by mountainous National Park and protected forests. The drive up the mountain is peppered with breath-taking lookouts, picnic spots and points of natural interest. Be sure to stop a while and enjoy the view.

At 680 metres above sea level the village is sometimes shrouded in cloudy mist. The cool mountain air makes Mount Glorious a particularly glorious place to visit during the hot summer months.

In and around Mount Glorious you’ll find a range of attractive accommodation options from weekend retreats and rainforest chalets, to bed-and-breakfasts and cosy cottages complete with fireplaces.

Mount Glorious also plays host to a magnificent world-class sculpture garden set amongst thick lush rainforest. Feel your work-day worries melt away as you marvel at these beautiful works of art crafted from marble, stone, bronze and onyx.

The stunning natural beauty of the mountain can be enjoyed with a bushwalk through adjoining Maiala National Park. Breathe in the crisp rainforest air, hike to the waterfall and be serenaded by hundreds of rainforest birds in song.
