Coward Springs is situated beside the old Ghan Railway in northern South Australia. You can find out more at the Coward Springs Wikipedia page. This area is situated along the boundary of the Great Artesian Basin where water trickles to the surface though mound springs. In the late 1800s, a bore was sunk at Coward Springs that literally turned the trickle into a flood. The flow has been staunched considerably since then, but this spa pool at the campground is still well supplied.
