Located in Brisbane’s South East region of Mount Cotton, Mount Cotton Retreat is a secluded luxury getaway where you have the room to relax and feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Yet it is only 30 mins to Brisbane CBD and the Gold Coast, so if you wanted a mix of seclusion and activities, then they are right on your doorstep or within a short drive.

The self-contained cabins are nestled along the mountain and surrounded by bush, offering privacy and complete tranquillity. All cabins are eco-friendly and you have the choice of views by the lake or overlooking the treetops of the surrounding bushland.

There is plenty to do on the property, starting with a walk around the 20 hectare ‘Boom-Ber-Pee’ (koala) private nature refuge. Venture beyond here just 1.2km to a bushwalker’s paradise at Venman National Park or take a hike through to Daisy Hill Forest and Koala Centre.

With all the surrounding bushland, you can be sure to spot wildlife even from your cabin deck. Animals like wallabies, koalas, possums and goannas are frequent visitors and it is a popular spot for bird watching. A guide is supplied in the rooms detailing some 80 species of birds found in the area.

A stay a Mount Cotton Retreat is the perfect mix of peaceful relaxation and warm genuine hospitality. Add to that the fact that it is pet friendly, and your furbaby can come along for the stay also.
