the tracks i have driven in glenelg are all easy 2 wheel drive tracks.
the camps sites are all easily accessible and really nice. all are close or right on the water and the park is very scenic. i thoroughly recommend it. dont forget to take your fishing rod and boat if you have one. the river is good for big bream, mulloway and salmon in the tidal areas and trout in the freshwater areas. the princess margaret caves are also worth a visit.
the section of the river that winds through sa and into vic is spectacular. it has limestone cliffs either side and is like a small victorian version of katherine gorge in the NT.
enjoy yourself.

Remeber to go to the parks office in Nelson FIRST, and pick and pay for your camp site(s). Remember too, that the parks officers will come and check that you have booked and paid for a site. Took two canoes down, (or that up), the river a few years ago in May and they checked our bookings on two of the four nights. Better to go out of peak season if possible, the parks guys are more helpful then and may even arrange some firewood if you ask nicely. Good value all up.
