21-Oct-2002 -- Having been twice thwarted in my goal of making it to two virgin confluences in one day, I was quite hopeful about doing so this time. I made it to 32°S 127°E in the morning and then continued east along the main highway. At Eucla, I drove north out of town on a graded track and then turned off at the fuel barrel painted 'Deakin'. This small track wound through the town's golf course and then out of the small scrub and up onto the Nullarbor Plains. Mobs of nothingness as far as you can see. Except for the occasional small tree, there is nothing more than rocks and small shrubs as far as you can see. It is not however totaly flat - there are just enough slight undulations to keep you from being able to see the curve of the earth.

After following the track for 79 km, I got to within 749 meters of the confluence and then hiked to the spot. The Goddess of Confluences was very pleased at making two confluences in one day and naturally she took all the credit.
