[Extract] The Great Artesian Basin is the world's largest artesian basin, with inflow mainly at its eastern Queensland margin, and outflows along its southern and western margins at mound springs formed by the build-up of precipitatesand aeolian sediments (Boyd 1990a).The water flowing from these point sources of permanent fresh water in a largely waterless environment generally evaporates or soaks into the soil within tens or hundreds of metres. Occasionally, there is sufficient water to form permanent swamps, some with growing peat.
