Broome Roadtrip 13 _ Gluepot

Gluepot, 50km north of Waikerie towards the Victorian border from Adelaide, is one of Australia's birding Meccas. A fair degree of self sufficiency is required whilst camping there (bring everything!) which means the experience is carefully planned and much appreciated, even more so when you see a heap of birds. There are several bird hides with water points, usually within a few metres of a carpark so the job is relatively easy. If you don't need the birds to come to you there are plenty of walking tracks of various lengths getting you in to some of the specialist environments. Scarlet-chested Parrot, Black-eared Miner, Red-lored Whistler and Chestnut Quail-thrush are key species.
