Visit Myalls Bore, near Derby to witness the ingenuity of the early farmers who drew water from the depths of the earth to fill a massive 120 metre long trough.

Built in the early 1900s, the impressive historic trough provided water for up to 1,000 head of cattle at a time. It is said to be one of the longest cattle troughs in the southern hemisphere.

Learn more about the bore at the Boab Prison Tree Interpretative Pavilion, which is a short stroll from the bore.
