#1: Looking North from confluence

(visited by Karl Gramp and Sharyn Habel)

14-Jan-2001 -- The confluence is located in cleared grazing land, though very desert like. Very few trees, most having been cleared years ago.

The confluence was accessed by leaving the Barrier Highway near Peterborough and heading down a dirt track until the confluence was about 400 metres away. Curiously the dirt track had a gate with a caution symbol on it but no indication of what it meant. As far as we could tell the road was for public use. When as close as possible by track we walked the last distance.

It was very hot with a number of small willy-willies (mini dust tornados generated by heat on the ground) moving around.
