13-Dec-2003 -- Our 2nd confluence attempt of the day took us a short drive north of Allora, a town just north of Warwick. The confluence itself turned out to be about 500m from the New England Highway, in a cane field.
After attempting to rouse the possible owners at a house nearby, all we managed to find was a metre-long brown snake soaking up the afternoon sun.
We left there, entered the open paddock and parked under a large gum tree. From here we approximated where the confluence would be in the field and headed in that direction.
After following the fenceline for a while (to avoid damaging the newly sprouting cane), we jumped over an electric fence and walked the next 100m to the confluence point. Taking the photos spooked the cows in the next paddock across, so we decided it was a good time to leave for our final confluence of the day.
