29-Sep-1992 -- This is one Confluence that is easy to find without a GPS, altough I did have a Sony IPS760 at the time. Actually it was my FIRST trip with a GPS.
The confluence is at the intersection of the New South Wales, South Australia and Quensland borders. All points where state boundaries meet are called Corners, and this one is known as Cameron Corner. Since the state boundary is based on AGD66, you will see the WGS 84 Confluence on the left side of the second photo, just near the trees.
We like to make jokes about it, but the fence wasn't built to keep Queenslanders out of NSW. It is there to keep the dingoes (wild dogs) out of the sheep farms in NSW. The fence is even longer than the Great Wall of China. The fenceline (actually the road beside it) is visible when flying over it at 12kms high. I had hoped to take a photo of it when I flew over it early 2001, but I wasn't quite fast enough.
The Bell family and the Richter family were headed off from Sydney to the outback and this was where we first saw desert conditions. West from here, there are large sand dunes, but the roads are still reasonable. It's not exactly the middle of nowhere - even in 1992 there was enough tourist traffic through there to justify a shop a few hundred metres away, called appropriately enough, the Corner Store.
