#1: Confluence looking North through fence

(visited by Tim Breeze, Suzanne Breeze, Sarah Breeze and Rachel Breeze)

27-Sep-2010 -- After spending a week camping at Lawn Hill National Park near the NT border we were on our way home to the Sunshine Coast, visiting the confluence at 19S 140E and overnighting at Julia Creek.

The next morning we followed the road towards Kynuna a short distance and then turned east on a dirt road that went past several station homesteads, hoping to ask permission and directions to get through the inevitable fences. None of the stations were permanently occupied and we saw no one at all. As it turned out the public road heading to the south from Yorkshire Downs station went fairly close to the confluence and we were able to follow a track along a fence line to within 700m of the target.

Along the way we saw several kangaroos and a feral fox. There were also a few locusts flying around, having hatched after recent rains which started early this year.

The country was mostly open grassland with sparse trees along the creeks and a few prickle bushes. The weather had turned hot and humid and there were thunderclouds building to the north.

We walked the last 700m to the point which was situated along side a fence. We took the necessary photos, returned to the car and headed to Richmond on the Flinders Highway.

That afternoon we successfully visited 21S 143E.
