Introducing our practical guide to water bore drilling in the Great Artesian basin within Queensland.

AgForce has partnered with the Australian Drilling Industry Association to produce this informative guide and checklist aimed at better informing landowners.

The guide explains what is involved in having a bore drilled and addresses the key factors to be aware of in constructing and commissioning a bore – including the regulatory requirements of the Queensland government, such as the necessary permits, licenses and approvals.

Feedback on the guide can be provided to General Manager Policy Dale Miller (
