[Extract] The Great Artesian Basin is one of the largest artesian basins in the world, containing an estimated 64.9 million gigalitres of water, and is the main source of fresh water for agriculture and other human use in inland Queensland. The Great Artesian Basin is defined on hydrogeological grounds, so its boundaries are diff erent from the constituent sedimentary basins. Within Queensland, most of the extracted groundwater is sourced from the Surat and Eromanga Basins, but groundwater is also extracted and recharged from the upper part of the Bowen and Galilee Basins.
