27-Mar-2005 -- This was Day 3 (Sunday) of our Easter weekend trip to attempt 4 confluences along 24 South latitude, working westwards from 118°E through to 115°E. The party consisted of my wife Sandy and I, and my brother John.
After refuelling at Mt Augustus, we continued west through Cobra Station, then on to Gifford Creek. There we met Tracey and Bruce Radford who were happy to assist with our mission. Bruce pointed us to an unmapped station track which led from the main Gifford Creek-Mangaroon road and across the Lyons River to within 260 metres of the confluence. We were delighted with this result, since I had planned an approach from the south which would have left us with a 4km walk in to the confluence! The confluence was on the north bank of Winmar Creek (see photo), about 300 metres upstream from its conjunction with the Lyons River. Having taken the usual photo set, we returned to the main road and continued on to Williambury Station to attempt 24°S 115°E, the last of our planned visits for this trip.
