#1: The Confluence

(visited by Pierre Gander and Brigitta Gander)

10-Oct-2014 -- On our way from Mount Isa to the coast of Queensland, there are several unvisitied confluences just north of the Flinders Highway. The confluence 20°S 143°E lies in farm land approx. 80 km north of the Dinosaur-Town Richmond.

We could drive on roads until 15 km from the confluence, spotting some kangaroos on the way. The last 15 km, we followed a fence track which became less and less used, the last 2 km we had to leave the car and walk. As it was already late in the day, we got to the confluence just before sunset. At the confluence, the land - originally bush - is being used for grazing cattle.
