26-Jul-2001 -- A little local knowledge and a very good map convinced me that this confluence could easily be reached by approaching from the SW. We set off on a pilgrimmage to Eyre Peninsula and this was our first port of call on a cool and foggy morning.

Upon reaching the Christadelphian church at Taylorville we determined the confluence to be about 10km away. We turned north onto the dirt road to 'Gluepot Reserve' (which is of interest to ornithologists, and is 50km to the north). We drove past some unusual buildings which are in fact a piggery and after about 6km we came to a gate. From there good judgment took us on the right track and we ended up driving to within 5 metres of the confluence.

Although it was past 10am the fog was still in the air but as we arrived it lifted rather quickly and left wonderful wet spider webs everywhere.
