04-Sep-2004 -- We were in Dalby and had a few hours to kill so we decided to visit the confluence which we knew was only about 30km down the highway just past the little hamlet of Macalister. We had read the previous visitor's report of a fun day bogged in the mud so we were eyeing the gathering storms clouds nervously as we approached the confluence.
This area is a good deal drier than when it was visited by the previous two confluence hunters and the dirt road was firm. Nevertheless, the axle-deep tyre tracks in the dried mud-patches reminded us that it might be a good idea to get our very two-wheel-drive car back on the bitumen before the rain.
We stopped the car near the Condamine river and easily walked the 300m or so to the confluence. After taking a few quick photos, we were back to the highway as on our way just as a storm was breaking.
