Description

Gluepot is located about 64kms from Waikerie, which is on the Sturt Highway (Highway No. 20) about 200kms from Adelaide. The last ~ 50km are unsealed and partly sandy and can become corrugated. Travelling time from Waikerie is ~75-90 min. It is best to phone ahead for an update on conditions, any closures, and the suitability of your vehicle (08) 8892 8600. Speed limit on Gluepot is 40 km/h. Don't let your sat-nav lead you astray - entry to Gluepot is only via Lunn Road (from Goyder Highway). There are 3 campsites at Gluepot (Babbler, Bellbird and Sitella) which are available for visitors to use. Camping fees are payable after arrival in Gluepot at the Visitor Information Centre, situated on track 1. Both day visitors and campers need to register there as well. This campsite does not take bookings. Tracks are suitable for 2WD and medium caravans when dry. However, after approx 20mm of rain, they may be closed or affected by water and suitable for 4WD only.

Visitors are advised that they will travel through private property before reaching the Gluepot boundary (speed limit 60 km/h). They should avoid stopping and under no circumstances are they to camp. They should be aware of the possible presence of kangaroos, cattle, or other feral animals and drive accordingly, and all gates should be left as found.

Hubby and I spent 4 nights at this amazing place (mid March) and camped at Sittella. We had the whole place to ourselves! Only the birds to make a sound! The stars at night were fantastic! The long drops couldn't have been any cleaner! Only one other couple camping at Babbler. The bird hides at dawn, in particular and at dusk were wonderful places to watch bird antics and get some brilliant photos! What an amazing job the volunteers do here.
