Allocasuarina glareicola is a species of the genus Allocasuarina native to Australia.

The dioecious or monoecious depauperate shrub typically grows to a height of 1 to 2 metres (3 to 7 ft). It flowers in October and has root suckers that can spread up to 3 metres (10 ft) from the base of the plant.

It is found in areas of open forest in a small area on the central coast of New South Wales growing in lateritic soils. The few small populations are found centred around Castlereagh Nature Reserve, north-east of Penrith with a total range of 36 square kilometres (14 sq mi).
