11-Feb-2005 -- From 32S 127E, This was our third confluence on our trip from Perth to Newcastle. We thought we would be the first to get this one, but Mark beat us by five days.

From Mildura we took the road towards Mungo National Park. We slept at cross roads 79K from Mildura.This cross road was 16.1K from the confluence. In the morning we turned right here and headed south on the Euston-Robinvale road. As we neared 34South we turned onto a track that headed east,it was marked with a sign "pipe".

At this point we were about 12K from the CP. About 2K from here the track started head north and went through a gate. So we turned right here and continued to head east along side the fence. There was a lot of old fence wire on this track. We came to a low lying area and the track headed north again away from the fence, and appeared to end at an earth dam.

We found another gate and rejoined the fence heading east agian.After a while the distance to the CP started to rise so we turned around and took a track that went north. A short distance up this track and the CP was 1.37K to the east which was about the same distance to it from the original track.So we parked the car and got ready for our walk. We saw a couple of goats near the CP,and were back at the car after a nice one hour walk.
