Maiala Park Lodge

    It’s hard to believe you can score hinterland accommodation only 45 minutes north of Brisbane. With all the beauty of a quiet hinterland town and that special unique charm, Mount Glorious is a beautiful place to book your next stay. It's the hinterland retreat you've been searching for!

    Maiala Park Lodge cottages provide excellent accommodation for those who love to relax, recharge and reconnect surrounded by nature. Choose between a self contained cottage or suites with views of Moreton Bay or suites located amongst the trees and beneath the canopy. Conveniently located at Mount Glorious within a short drive of rainforest walks, 4WD tracks, restaurants, cafes, and scenic lookouts, you may never want to leave.

    All guests have access to the pool, tennis court, a pillow menu as well as the gorgeous main lodge living, dining and verandahs.

    Hinterland Retreat Accommodation Options

    Just off Mount Glorious Road, high on a hill, sits the historic Maiala Park Lodge. Built in 1999 Maiala Park Lodge offers gorgeous accommodation options for up to 12 guests.

    The Bowerbird Cottage is a cosy one-bedroom cottage with a large, fully stocked kitchen with views across to the Brisbane CBD and the Maiala Park Lodge pool. Curl up by the fire, delve into a new book in the reading room, cosy up with a movie, and find your inner peace with some yoga on the deck.

    Alternatively, choose to stay in the North Wing Suits offering views over Moreton Bay or the Main House (living, dining and kitchen) providing everything you need for a family or group stay.

    If you're longing for the whole hinterland retreat experience, allow the Maiala Park Lodge team to organise a masseur to come to your room. You will sure feel a full sense of zen then.

    Nestled on Garumngar Country of the Jinibara Nation

    Maiala Park Lodge was built on Garumngar country of the Jinibara nation. The Jinibara People are the mountain people. Their name means “people of the lawyer vine” (bara meaning “people” and Jini meaning “lawyer vine”).

    Garumngar country is the rolling country between the Brisbane River and the southern edge of D’Aguilar National Park. The Jinibara nation extends as far as the Glass House Mountains, Somerset Dam and the southern end of D’Aguilar National park. This southern end of Jinibara country is where the Lodge is situated.

    If you’d like to learn more about Aboriginal culture, Joaben (Inningai/Wakka Wakka) and Lucy are able to run yarning circles or workshops in areas that overlap with their cultural knowledge and your interest.

    Behind "Maiala"

    Prized for its calm and serene feel, Maiala Park Lodge embodies its name entirely. The Lodge was named after the 'Maiala' day-use area of the national park in Mount Glorious. “Maiala” is a word from the Jinibara people meaning quiet place and its exactly that, quiet.
