Rosemary and Russell Cuthbertson are the owners of Turkey’s Nest, a property located in Mount Glorious approximately 40km north-west of Brisbane. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary offering eco-friendly accommodation in the form of fully self-contained cottages.
Turkey’s Nest is set on 6 hectares and surrounded by D’Aguilar National Park, which consists of a combination of subtropical rainforest and wet sclerophyll forest. Approximately 75% of the sanctuary is subtropical rainforest with the remaining 25% developed as a small, eco-friendly accommodation business.
Wildlife known to inhabit the property includes a wide variety of native birds, lace monitors (Varanus varius), short-nosed (Isoodon macrourus) and long-nosed (Perameles nasuta) bandicoots and carpet pythons (Morelia spilota) with red-necked pademelons (Thylogale thetis) often spotted nearby.
