"Takes you places"
On Saturday morning we left Babbler campsite at 0900 and walked in a westerly direction back towards the Homestead and Visitors Centre. We then took vehicle track 6 north towards Froggy Dam with a morning tea stop adjacent to the air strip. We enjoyed mild weather after a fresh start with a minimum temp of – 0.5 degrees Celsius. We investigated the bird hide at Froggy Dam but a bunch of 14 noisy bushwalkers couldnt keep quiet and still long enough to attract any birds. We had lunch in this area. Luckily for late October we had great weather with a mild slightly overcast day, and a breeze keeping the flies at bay. After lunch we followed Walking Track 9 which partly follows the Northern perimeter of the sanctuary before coming onto vehicle track number 4 and then number 2 to Sitella Campsite. Approximately 23 kms for the day.
We had left a vehicle in Sitella campsite with water. We were treated to another fine star filled evening with an amazing dawn chorus of birds on Sunday. After breaking camp at Sitella at 0830 we walked back to vehicle track 4 and headed South to pick up the Oil-Line walking track. We walked along this in an Easterly direction back towards the Homestead and then onto the Babbler Campsite to collect our cars by midday. Approximately 14 kms on Sunday.
Friday night Babbler Campsite
Saturday night Sitella Campsite.
All campsites in Gluepot have cleared camping areas and 1 drop toilet with a water tank.
The campsites are well signposted.
While it is easy walking in this area along well marked trails, the volunteer rangers discouraged us from walking off track. I would also recommend bike riding in this area. For more information on Gluepot Reserve visit the website : www.gluepot.org
