#1: General view of the area

(visited by Tibor Piroth and Jürgen Salrein)

30-Jul-2006 -- Jürgen currently lives only 6.5 km away from this confluence point. It has been visited already three times, but always coming from the southeastern side. We were trying to come as close as possible to 26S 28E from the northwestern side.

It's possible to come as close as 92 m to the confluence point without hitting the electric fence on the northern end of the walled development there.

Quite easy to go to this point: drive around all the buildings, then a walk of 160 m through some grass to the point where the pictures were taken. The last picture shows some bushfires that evolved close to that area during the time of our visit. We managed to escape unharmed.
