(visited by David Burren)

09-Jul-2001 -- Embarking on a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide (to attend the SAGE-AU 2001 conference) I had the chance to take some time and detour to visit various confluences. 38S 144E made a nice simple start to the journey. It was very easy to find.

Driving from Melbourne via Geelong, I took the Ballarat road, turning off to Bannockburn (where I stopped for some lunch). Then continued on through Teesdale. About 5kms after Teesdale there's a road heading north to Meredith. This road takes you right past the confluence (after a kilometre or so, on the left).

The confluence was showing up as about 100m away from the road in what appears to be a sheep-grazing property.

Leaving the car and squeezing through the fence, it was a short walk to the confluence. In photo 4 you can just see the GPS sitting on the ground at the confluence in the lower right. My car is amongst the trees.

The picture of the GPS indicates the wrong time. I realised later that the GPS was still on summer-time: it was actually 12:30. Just so you don't think I'm a speed-demon when you look at the photos for 38S 143E :) The EPE was 21m.

Now off to 38S 143E and 37S 143E on the same afternoon...
