Waikerie Gliding Club began with a small group of gliding enthusiasts in 1937. Since those pioneering days, the Club has gone through many changes.

Waikerie is world renowned for the fantastic soaring conditions which prevail over a generally long, hot summer. The surrounding countryside offers excellent cross country soaring.

Club facilities

The Club has something for anyone interested in gliding, whether you are trying gliding for the first time, or an experienced glider pilot looking for a great place to extend yourself.

In 2004 and 2005, the Club ran the Australian Clubclass Nationals at Waikerie: and in 2010 the Multiclass Nationals. The competitions went well, with a couple of huge "Waikerie days". Some South Australian state competitions have been flown at Waikerie.

Please explore the Waikerie Gliding Club site. You'll be tempted to experience some of the best soaring conditions in the world, at Waikerie, South Australia.
