Water


Cunnamulla is on the banks of the Warrego River, currently flush with water.  But much of this semi arid land depends on the great artesian basin, a huge underground water reserve,  for water supply.  The bore water is fine to drink but the showers in the morning have a rather strange sulphuric smell.

We went through an interesting informational exhibit on the artesian basin at the information centre.

  1. You are a long way from home. The artesian basin is an amazing geological feature of Oz.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
