#1: The Confluence from 30 m

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

05-Nov-2012 -- The story starts at 43°S 147°E and continues from 38°S 146°E.

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.
