Australian Groundwater Explorer

The Australian Groundwater Explorer provides access to a wide range of groundwater data, including around 900 000 bore locations, bore logs, groundwater levels, salinity, hydrochemistry, 3D groundwater models, groundwater management areas and landscape characteristics. The application allows you to visualise and analyse groundwater information within an area of interest. Datasets can be downloaded for further analysis.

The Explorer does not require specialised software used by GIS specialists. It includes extra data not contained in the National Groundwater Information System, including groundwater levels, salinity and hydrochemistry.

Read our Information Sheet (1.9MB) for an overview of the Explorer.

Launch the Explorer or view a plain text interface.

Using the Explorer

The Help function within the Explorer is intended to guide you through the basic functionality of the web mapping portal. The Help function includes descriptions of tool functionality and a 'how to' section for common tasks. Explanations are available in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
