Artesian Bore

To the south of the town on the Normanton Road there is a 100-year-old artesian bore. It is arguably the only really interesting bore in Queensland as it has been running for over a century and the minerals in the water have built up so that now it looks more like a piece of modern sculpture than a tap to an underground supply of hot water. The pond which has formed around the bore has also been coloured by the minerals.
