(visited by Owen Foley)

03-Dec-2000 -- This confluence point is located 1.7 kilometres east of the New England Highway, 6 kilometres north of Tenterfield. Finding this point only 90 metres off Geyers Road was a pleasant change from circumnavigating a point in a futile search for a turn in the right direction and not getting closer than 10 kilometres. The point is atop a small rise behind the Washfield farmhouse and at the time of my visit was home to a flock of sheep and new lambs.

This site is on the 300 kilometre long New England Tableland, often referred to as the Granite Belt. The area has many impressive granite outcrops such as Bald Rock National Park, a short distance away and worth a visit.

Driving east across the Great Dividing Range towards another confluence point I had to stop to photograph a church because of the name of the old sawmill village.
