Abstract

This Bulletin deals with the groundwater resources of the central and eastern parts of the Barkly Tableland from the Queensland border westward to Tarrabool Lake and Rockhampton Downs homestead. This region comprises the Wallhallow, Brunette Downs, Alroy, Mount Drummond, Ranken, and Avon Downs 1:250,000 Sheet areas; it is bounded in the north by the headwaters of the McArthur, Clyde, and Nicholson Rivers, and in the south by the semidesert area which extends from near Tennant Creek east-south-eastwards to within a few miles west of Lake Nash homestead (Fig. 1). The region is served by the townships of Camooweal, 8 miles to the east on the Barkly Highway, and Tennant Creek, 70 miles to the west on the Stuart Highway. The bitumen-sealed Barkly Highway connects Mount Isa to Tennant Creek via Camooweal, and provides access to numerous station tracks and stock routes.
