About this assessment

Witjira-Dalhousie is one of the important artesian discharge springs in the Great Artesian Basin. The Australian Heritage Council found it is of outstanding national significance for its endemic fish, invertebrates and plants; as an outstanding example showing the principle characteristics of mound springs as a class of Aboriginal cultural places; and for its association with an exceptional density of story or song lines.

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 Witjira-Dalhousie Springs .
