Default Slope Soaring in South Australia

Hi all, I am about to buy a slope soaring glider and am looking for sites in South Australia to use my glider.
I"m about 25km south of Adelaide and would like to find some where less that an hour travel. I'm also a beginner with a Radian Glider.

Hi TM4197,
I'm south of Adelaide, Dry, no rain for days but very windy.
Tried gliding in Adelaide this morning, left home, it was calm, got to Victoria Park and it was bolwing a gail. No good for the Radian.

There's a number of SA guys who fly slope you'll find most hang out on RCGroups on the slope forum also on the Australian regional forum they will steer you in the right direction without doubt.
Cheers

I think there is a website going by the name of "Southern Soaring League" that runs alot of the sailplane competitions here in South Australia.
I know there is meant to be a slope site at Hallet Cove and another at Deep Creek Conservation Park somewhere near a hangliding slope, it's an aboriginal name .
