16-Nov-2013 -- This was my first confluence point south of equator. I had been to the country and other places in the southern hemisphere, but that was before I joined the confluence point hunting near Murmansk in Northern Russia about seven years ago.
I arrived in Perth from Bangkok in the morning, got a car at the airport and went straight to the golf club where S32 E116 is situated. A big competition was on and they told me to come back another day. So I headed east. The sun was shining and the temperatures were at least 35 centigrade, more than what I had in Chiangmai the day before.
Approaching the confluence point I passed a dead kangaroo by the road side and saw several road sign warning of high kangaroo density, a bit similar to the road signs you find in Norway telling you to look out for larger animals, the elks/moose. But if you hit one of those, both you and the elk are likely to be seriously injured, or worse.
From Perth I took road 94 to York, the oldest town on the west coast. Just after an old wooden church on the main road I took the right on Greenhills South road. The area seemed very dry, but the field was full of oats which seemed ready for harvesting. The cp was about 6 km down the road, perhaps about a hundred meters from the actual road. It was near a dried out stream surrounded by some weeds with seeds which penetrated socks and jeans and took a long time to get rid of. But an easy trip.
Ps. The time on the GPS is central European time
