FACTS ABOUT DALHOUSIE SPRINGS:
- Dalhousie Springs lies in the heart of arid Australia, a large oasis in one of the driest parts of the continent.
- These are the largest artesian springs in Australia and are of national and international significance.
- Dalhousie Springs are so isolated from other bodies of permanent water that they contain many endemic animals.
- The group of springs, collectively referred to as Dalhousie Springs includes Missionary Spring, Mt Jessie Spring, Earwanyera, Warrarrinna and Dalhousie Springs Proper.
- There are approximately 100 springs and mounds at Dalhousie, of which about 80 are active and are spread over an area of only about 70 km sq.
- Some springs have such large outflows that the group as a whole accounts for about 43% of the natural flow of water from the Great Artesian Basin.
- Some of the springs have large pools at their source, others are cold seeps.
- Long drainage channels from the larger springs become extensive swamplands which like the spring mounds and pools, support a lush vegetation.
