Information

The corner consists of two actual markers separated by a distance of 75 metres. this creates a dogleg in the WA border. It is approximately seven km north east of Irrunytju community. Both are on the land of Mr Eddy and you must be escorted to the markers by one of the traditional owners. Arrangements (permits) have to be obtained prior to heading to Irrunytju (Wingellina) thru the West Australian DIA website. Prior to heading that way, ring the store or community centre to ensure that people will be around and available at the time of your arrival. Once arrived at Wingellina, head to the community centre and pay the appropriate fee (At July 07 - it was $100 per vehicle and $20 per person) and someone will be located to escort you (usually Mr Eddy or Mr Donald FERGUSON, both community elders). Both are very helpful and will give you permission to take photographs.
This post on the Forum also has some valuable information.
