Mount Glorious is part of the D'Aguilar Range approximately 30 km north west of Brisbane accessed via Samford. It is actually a suburb in the Moreton Bay region.

The forest that surrounds the mountain village is part of Brisbane Forest Park and the D'Aguilar National Park. Other mountains in the D'Aguilar Range include Mount Nebo, Mount Pleasant and Mount Mee. The peak is approximately 599 m above sea level.

Mt Glorious is a favourite for day trips from Brisbane and surrounds. There are a selection of great walking tracks through the rainforest (mostly grade two), some spectacular views to be had over the Samford Valley and some great places for coffee and a meal. Weekends are extremely popular - especially with motor biking groups.
