Morven Great Artesian Basin

Morven, Murweh Area

Morven is fortunate to be situated on the Great Artesian Basin, ensuring the town of a constant and reliable water supply. The water is approximately two million years old, and really did run off the backs of dinosaurs!

Today, two bores provide Morven with their water. The depths of the bores range from 700 to 800 metres; pumps are needed to ensure adequate water pressure is provided to every household.

The main bore has an interpretive sign, explaining this amazing water source, the largest underground Water Reservoir in the Southern Hemisphere.
