Wabma Kadarbu Mound Springs Conservation Park

Explore the natural artesian springs within Wabma Kadarbu Mound Springs Conservation Park. The Blanche Cup and The Bubbler mound springs are created from water deep within the Great Artesian Basin which filters to the surface forming mounds and bubbling ponds. The wetlands created by the spring's overflow provide habitat to a variety of waterbirds.

It is here among this fragile and arid environment where the extinct mound spring of Hamilton Hill can also be found.
