26-Sep-2003 -- Near Litchfield National Park

Exactly two years from the day of this confluence's first visit by Jean-Michel Weil, my family and I were undertaking a one-week sojourn through Australia's "top-end" with our itinerary including a day trip through Litchfield National Park. We were able to easily drop in on this confluence with only a 300 metre detour off the main road to Litchfield National Park and a 50 metre walk through some light bush.

I've been logging all of the GPS data from this trip and fiddling around with the data on my laptop each night in our campervan, so with my Fujitsu Lifebook at the ready and with my GPS having its data cable already attached, I though it would be interesting to try to get a Mapsource Screenshot with all zeros with live tracking activated. The best I could manage was S13.00001 E131.00003 - but I did manage to take a photo of the GPS in the traditional manner with all zeros and four metre accuracy.

The termite mound nestled around the tree on which I took the photo of the GPS and laptop is within a five metre radius of the confluence and is quite an interesting feature.

In close proximity to the confluence, the GPS altitude varied between 85 and 92 metres.
