QLD Bore Construction

We construct bores of all types, for all situations and geologies in Southern QLD. The most common types of bores are:

Stock and domestic (low-yielding) water supply bores.

Stock and domestic (low-yielding, non-flowing) bores (with electric submersible pump).

Commercial (higher yielding) water supply bores

Commercial (higher yielding, non-flowing, screened and gravel packed) bores

bore licensing

QLD Bore Licensing & Permits

We can take care of licensing, permits and general guidance to ensure you meet your legal obligations.

Before you can construct  bore on your property, you must ensure that any licenses or permits required for your location are sought and approved. Whether you require a license or permit, depends on your location and function of the water bore.


In QLD, a landholder generally does not need a permit for a stock and domestic bore. It is the drillers obligation to submit to the department or environment and resource management all details of the construction of the bore.

In some areas, licenses are required to drill a water bore including intersection of the sediments of the great artesian basin.

What Our Customers Say

Michael McNamara

I contracted Aquabore Drilling to drill for my domestic bore near Tenterfield in November 2019.
Before, on the day, and after, I found Harry (and Stu) to be professional and organised.
On the day the Drilling Rig and crew ran like a well oiled machine.
Phone calls and emails always promptly replied to, paperwork processed on time and always kept his word.
All that and a good price as well, I couldn’t be happier with Aquabore Drilling.
Thank you for helping make us secure!

Steve Mason

Harry and his team were first class. They got onto my farm without any problem, sorted where to drill and found an excellent source of water. My property otherwise had no permanent secure water supply. Harry fixed that. I now have an abundant supply to service my orchard and house. Couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Aquabore.

Andrew Zagar

I strongly recommend Aquabore Drilling.
Why not give Harry a call.
Thanks Harry great job.

monitoring bores

Monitoring Bores


Monitoring bores are used to monitor water levels, water quality and monitor contaminants such as hydrocarbons, coliforms, pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals.

Monitoring bores are generally low-yield construction but provide for accurate water sampling and water measurements from a particular area of interest in an aquifer.

sand spears

Sand Spears


Sand Spears are a type of bore used in shallow (less than 6m depth) unconfined aquifers.

Shallow installations are usually used for delivering low quantities of water for watering a garden for example.

Clean. Renewable. Eco-Friendly.

Underground water is generally safer than surface water for drinking because of the filtration and natural purification process which takes place underground.
