#1: approaching the point

(visited by Angus Rolle, Lisa Rolle and Mark Rolle)

23-Feb-2008 -- We visited this confluence point during a delivery flight of a helicopter from Brisbane, QLD to Victoria River Downs Station in the NT.On the same trip we also visited or passed by 18S-135E, 18S-138E, 18S-139E, 18-141, 19S-141E, 22S-142E, 26S-144E and 26S-146E. We made a detour via the Gulf of Carpentaria to go Heli-fishing for Barramundi - highly recommended.

What appeared to be a green field was actually a sea of grass approximately 2 metres high. Grass sure grows well here after a good wet season. The down wash of the helicopter was enough to flatten it to allow a safe landing. Finding the actual point was an effort due to the grass and the ever present risk of snakes! Any visitors who want to come back here should bring a machete!
