Caldayanup diaries #8

This is the tree that marks Juliet Oscar Niner Niner.

For ages I drove past this tree thinking who was Jo and how did they die in 1999?
But, unlike the Wandjinas, this marker tree has only been freshened up for a short time now. Here is a map to show where that tree is. Can you plot it?


  1. Yeh, I can see it and the others too. So do you know what these coordinates refer to?

  2. It’s called a forest grid reference number, to geographically locate a certain position. JO99 is a mile square block. The one directly north of that would be JN99, east would be JO100. The spotters and towers use it to relay fire info.
