#1: General View of Confluence Area

(visited by Stephen Langman, Fiona Langman and David Lloyd)

11-Jul-2007 -- After another enjoyable day in the Wudinna Area, visiting the many interesting rock formations that the area is famous for, it was time to head towards the coast from Pygery towards Port Kenny. This is a very good quality bitumen road and approximately mid way between the two towns is a rural area known as Moonlight Flat, where the confluence is located. Stopping the vehicles at the junction of a dirt road, we headed up the dirt track on foot for approximately 160 metres, where it was then time to head into the Mallee covered area for 30 metres to locate this confluence.

This area is typical of Mallee areas in Australia and the stone cairn that Frank mentioned was still there. The white areas in the photos are limestone and not salt deposits as previously stated. After the required photo shots and another successful confluence visit, we head for the coast to view the seals south of Streaky Bay. From the coastal areas, we then headed inland again for the Gawler Ranges and it would be another three days before we could again log another confluence.
