24-Jan-2011 -- After my first ever Confluence point visit to 38S-142E only a few weeks ago when I was down in Victoria for Christmas I thought it was time to give another one a go.
I am currently living in Toowoomba and had to get up early to drive south to Warwick Airport to meet a friend who was taking me for a fly in his Jabiru 230. I knew on the drive down that I would be passing close to this Confluence Point and thought I would make it my mission to do it on the way home.
After a great fly to check out the damage from the recent floods I set off on my mission. On the New England Highway which is the main road back to Toowoomba I came to within about 500M of the point but to park off the main road a bit I drove a little way up Jone Park Road which runs to the East approx 500m south of the Confluence Point.
From the road to the point it was only a short walk through some farm land. I did have to cross a small creek which did have water in it and was also fairly muddy either side which is no doubt from the recent devastating floods which have caused so much destruction in the area recently. In fact I would not be surprised at all if the Confluence Point itself was underwater a couple of weeks ago.
The point itself is just on the northern side of an East/West running fence line and the paddock which the point is in has recently been ploughed and judging by previous visits to this point will be cropped again shortly.
My watch which I adjusted to accurate Barometric pressure for the day/time indicated that the point is at an Elevation of 1710ft AMSL.
