The historic well is one of two wells established on the pastoral lease of Parnel and Bowman in the 1850s. This well was used to water cattle on their way from the Bowman's property at Crystal Brook to supply the townships of Kadina and Wallaroo with meat. The well was reported to have supplied Moonta Mines with water in the 1860s.



The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
