On my bicycle trip's section between Melbourne and Sydney, I came across
this confluence point in the morning of the second day. I had camped out
near the village Bonnie Doon about 13 km from the confluence point.
I left the main road at a distance of about 2.4 km and followed a signpost
to the Sundale Farm. At a distance of 1.2 km, I 'parked' my bicycle and
walked along farm tracks until I located the confluence point near an overhead power-line. Right at the
confluence, there is unmown high grass with scattered trees.
I walked back the same route that I had come (without seeing any human
being) and also rode the same track back to the main road to continue my
trip to Sydney.
