About the neighbourhood
Turkey's Nest is just 40km (65 miles) from Brisbane city, yet is situated in a relaxing forest setting, surrounded by D'Aguilar National Park. Our cool mountain climate makes it refreshingly cooler (approx 6 deg) than Brisbane in summer, and delightfully cold and misty in winter. The village of Mount Glorious features a restaurant and several cafes, a sculpture garden, and numerous walking tracks through the National Park.
