19-Aug-2004 -- On our return from Marble Bar via the North West Coastal Highway, my wife and I called in to Mallina Station to request permission to visit the confluence. We met Karen and Laurie Watherston who were pleased to allow us to attempt the visit. When told of the purpose of our visit, Karen said with a smile that "we should get a life", then dug out some station maps to show us some possible tracks to use.
The confluence was about 13km south of the homestead, but we could only drive to within 2.6km. My wife Sandra decided to stay with the vehicle, while I walked in to the site. The going was fairly rough, mostly the dreaded spinifex interspersed with rocky outcrops, scrub, and a few clear clay pan areas. I took just over an hour to make the return trip. There was a patch of the beautiful Sturt Desert Pea near the confluence (see photo).
