(visited by Daniel Klein and Vladas Leonas)

02-Jul-2000 -- Hey! I got the first confluence in New South Wales! Vladas and I drove up in to the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney, and decided that it would be more expedient to do the confluence on the way home, instead of on the way up. Doh!

We got the timing all messed up, and arrived at the confluence after the sun had set. In case anyone wants to try it in daylight, it is on Map 311 of the Sydney street guide. Take Heathcote Road (rt 7) to Holsworthy. After you cross Deadman's Creek (you gotta love that name!), the road goes due south, and about midway down the southerly run, you arrive within a couple of hundred yards. Just below the confluence is Mill Creek, which flows into Georges River, which drains into the infamous Botany Bay.

The pictures are not terribly exciting, since it's well after sunset. But is was a fun drive!
