A canoe trip from Moleside to Nelson, and we only touched the surface. A great park throughout with good facilities. I did wonder about the use of wood fires though in summer, especially in the park. But all seemed to be safe. Will be back.

I had no idea the Glenelg River was so huge. Heaps of walking tracks throughout the national park with lots of access to the river. Fishing extremely popular.

For anyone travelling from Melbourne to Adelaide, an overnight stop or a week's camping is well worth the detour. Camping spots next to the Glenelg River have flush toilets. Sites need to be pre booked through "parkstay.vic". The birdlife is prolific and there are kangaroos,...More
