Surveyor-General's corner

Surveyor-General's corner

Surveyor-General's corner is a corner in the state boundaries of Australia where the states of South Australia and Western Australia meet the Northern Territory. It is very remote and has been said to have had fewer visitors than the South Pole []

As of the 7th of March 2003 access to the area has been closed following a decision by the Irrunytju (Wingellina) Community. Fines may be incurred for unauthorised entry [] .

The nearest settlement is the Aboriginal community of Kalka in South Australia, situated on the Gunbarrel Highway just a few kilometres to the south.
