The Doongmabulla Springs Complex is an Australian nationally important wetland listed as “threatened ecological communities” by the Australian Government. The Doongmabulla Springs are part of the Great Artesian Basin and are just 8km from the Adani Carmichael Coal Mine. Adani’s illegal activity threatens the springs.
