Was at that tractor last year. I thought I had backed my photo's but I had not and then lost the sd card so no pictures or the exact location. Looking at my breadcrumb trail its at 24 49 16.9 S 135 43 40.6 E or close there to. In respect to the cairn no pictures and I cannot recall where I saw it.

Hi Chris

You must not have had your glasses on that day. After leaving the tractor, you would have seen The Twins in the distance. The hill on the right had side has the cairn on it and we saw it in early May 2006.

Yes I can recall it now. Remember I was travelling for five and half months last year and saw a zillion things. It takes a few days to remember things.

The plaques are definately on top of the Twins, and the tractor is just off the track to the south.

Hi Michelle

As you can see, you only have to ask and someone will always give you the correct answer. For a moment, there, I thought you were going to asking about these plaques....lol

Gee Stephen, I must admit you guys over there show a healthy respect for your explorers. Big Plaques, Obelisks, I reckon you're ahead of us by a whisker.
Should we start a thread about plaques (not Lens that been done)

Hi Allan

You have just posted a great reply. I bet there must be dozens of cairn and plaques scatter all over our great country.

The early explores, which as you know there were dozens of them opened up our country and did and performed some increadible tasks.

Here we are today complaing about, flat tyres, scratched paintwork and the like, yet when those very brave men set off, they often would not know if they would return safely from our uncharted interior.
