(visited by Ross Finlayson)

25-Feb-2014 -- I decided make a detour to visit this confluence point before visiting Bunya Mountains National Park nearby. Oh, who am I kidding! The confluence point was the real purpose of my trip. Bunya Mountains National Park was just a nearby landmark that I used to justify the trip!

This confluence point was surprisingly easy to visit (which explains the relatively large number of previous visitors). Taking the Warrego Highway west of Dalby, I turned left onto (gravel) Logie Road, and then left onto a narrow dirt farm road that passed just 50 metres from the confluence point. From there it was an easy walk (after stepping over a barbed-wire fence at a point where a tree had fallen down onto it) to the confluence point, which lies in grassland, among thinly-spaced trees. (Surprisingly for Australia, most of the trees in the immediate vicinity of the confluence point are not eucalyptus.)

The ground was dry, apparently with relatively little recent rain, so - unlike some of the previous visitors - I had no problem driving along the farm road towards the confluence point. But also, unfortunately, I didn't see or hear any of the flocks of birds witnessed by previous visitors.
