This is the position for the meeting of 3 state boundaries - Queensland meets South Australia and the Northern Territory. Named by surveyor Augustus Poeppel in the mid-1880s the site was originally marked with a wooden post however various markers have been replaced over time. The site now contains interpretative signage and there are good camp sites in the vicinity.
