Glendora campground (40 sites)

Wheelchair access: hard

Wheelchairs can access this area with some difficulty

  • This area is 1.5km from the centre of the village. Camping is on a sloping hillside, but some sites are suitable for wheelchairs.
  • There is a wheelchair-accessible shelter shed and other modern amenities.
  • Wheelchair-accessible toilet and shower are available for a $1 coin use fee

The centre of Hill End is just nearby but Glendora campground feels a million miles away from everything. Enjoy breakfast in the company of kangaroos to a soundtrack of galahs and king parrots singing from the trees.

There’s camping to suit everyone, with a few different sections to choose from, including a special area reserved just for groups, as well as sites for caravans and motorhomes. There are excellent picnic facilities and plenty of cover under pavilions just in case the weather turns from sunshine to rain.

After you’ve worked up an appetite learning about days gone by at Hill End’s historic sites, why not gather around the fire ring for a cook-up on the hotplate, followed by some spooky stories?

The Village campground has powered and unpowered campsites and is a great base for a family weekend spent discovering the living history of Hill End.

A bonus of camping less than a kilometre from the centre of Hill End is that if you’ve forgotten any creature comforts – or something more vital – you can walk to the general store where you’re sure to find what you need.

Or if you fancy a change from a picnic or barbecue why not stroll into town and grab a bite at the Royal Hotel or sample some delights from the bakery and café at Hosie’s?

Been on the road for a while? You can even wash, dry and iron your clothes at the new laundry here. Camping has never been so easy.
