23-Apr-2010 -- Leaving the Gold Coast and heading to a 4WD competition at Goomburra I had to pass through the Township of Beaudesert and thought I would have a crack at finding my first Confluence.

I punched in the Co-ordinates as I came into town then turned right for Kerry and it wasn't long before I found the mark was behind a row of houses and appeared to be in a recently slashed paddock.

At the town end of the row of houses was a gate leading into the paddock so I headed off on the short walk to the mark.

As I got closer I was concentrating on working out how to operate the GPSR while I zig-zagged across the paddock and felt someone watching me ... turned out to be about a dozen or so cows!

It must have looked a bit strange to see a bloke leading a mob of cows around in ever diminishing circles in the middle of a paddock !!

Anyway, I found the spot and noticed a wooden stake lying on the ground at the spot which may have been run over by the slasher?

I took a few pics and then headed back to the car. No Cows were hurt in the making of this post although a few may be slightly dizzy :)
