Birds Australia Gluepot Reserve


Details
Gluepot Reserve is a birdwatcher's paradise. Black-Eared Miners, Red-Lored Whistlers and Malleefowl are among the 18 nationally threatened species which can be seen regularly. Fourteen marked walking trails lead the visitor through the varied vegetation and five elevated bird hides provide magnificent viewing for bird watchers. Gluepot covers 54,300 hectares of mallee scrub, interspersed with Black Oak woodlands. The reserve has a well-marked track system, suitable for two-wheel-drive vehicles and mountain bikes. There are three camping grounds suitable for tents, caravans and vehicles. Gluepot Reserve is part of the largest block of intact mallee left in eastern Australia and thus the viability of populations of threatened species is high. The reserve is listed on the Register of the National Estate, and is part of Australia's National Reserve System and the Riverland Biosphere Reserve. It’s the largest area of land covered by a Heritage Agreement in South Australia.
