The intersection of the Northern Territory and the states of South Australia and Western Australia is known as the Surveyor General's Corner.

The corner consists of two actual markers separated by a distance of 127 metres. This creates a dogleg in the WA border. It is approximately seven km north east of Irrunytju (Wingellina) community. Both are on the land of Mr Eddy, however he has since passed away.

It is highly unlikely for anyone these days to obtain permission to visit this spot and it was always only ever done via direct escort by one of the community elders. Please be aware that requesting access is not a guarantee that you'll be able to obtain permission or an escort. Your request may be ignored or refused.

Arrangements (permits) are not easy to obtain. Refer to recent comments below dated 2019 and follow the link to view the extensive replies posted by others on the ExplorOz Forum.
