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.
