27-Jan-2021 -- I ended this tour of rural New South Wales with a (long) drive from Cobar back to Sydney. En route, I made a detour to visit this ‘forgotten’ Degree Confluence Point - which had been visited only once before, more than 19 years ago. Despite being out of the way, this point is quite easy to visit, as it lies in a flat farm field, just 450m South of a rural road (Peisley Road). Furthermore, a private farm road (which appears to be the main entrance to this farm) takes you almost to the point.
In December 2001, the Thompsons showed a crop of wheat growing in this field. This time, the field was fallow, but a crop of some sort of melon had apparently recently been grown here, as there were a few small melons still lying around. Because this was a private farm field (with farm buildings visible to the southwest), I took my photos quickly, and left. (Because I still had a long drive ahead of me, I avoided the temptation to drive another 26+ km to visit the cairn marking the geographic centre of New South Wales.)
