About this assessment

The Australian Heritage Council found Elizabeth Springs is nationally significant as one of a suite of important artesian discharge springs in the Great Artesian Basin for endemic fish, invertebrates and plants. It is also significant for its rarity, nearly three-quarters of the Queensland Great Artesian Basin are extinct, and all those in New South Wales are either extinct or badly damaged.

In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for the Elizabeth Springs.
