Gluepot Reserve

Birds Australia’s publicly funded reserve preserves 51 300 hectares of the largest block of intact mallee left in Australia. It is home to nationally endangered birds such as black-eared miners, red-lored whistlers, regent and scarletchested parrots, as well as stunning other species such as orange chats. There are bird hides, bushwalks and a visitor centre. As it is a bit of a hike to get here (one and a half hours along a good dirt road north of Waikerie), you will probably want to stay a night or two, but you will need to be completely self-sufficient, bringing all your own water, camping gear, food and gas cooker. Jolly Goodfellows Birding runs guided tours.
