03-Aug-2009 -- This confluence point was visited while we were on holiday, travelling from Perth to Cairns then back to Perth via the Gulf and the Kimberley.
Four visits were planned for this trip: 12°S 143°E, 18°S 140°E, 17°S 129°E and 17°S 138°E.
This confluence point is on the border between Queensland and the Northern Territory, and is on the property of Wollogorang Station.
I had contacted the station's owner prior to leaving Perth, seeking his permission to traverse Wollogorang in order to visit the confluence point - but did not hear back from him.
On the day that the visit was planned we drove into Wollogorang and fortunately the owner, Stuart Zlotkowski, was at home. After receiving an explanation and clarification of our intentions he gave us his permission to proceed and provided instructions for reaching the target point. We are grateful to him for this.
Sarah-Jane and I drove from the homestead 25km north along a dusty station track which, as planned, took us to within 200m of the point. From there it was a short and easy walk through reasonably dense savannah scrub to the confluence point, a few metres west of which a large wallaby was waiting for us! (See photograph)
After taking the prescribed photographs, the return to the homestead and exiting the station and back to the main road were straightforward and uneventful.
