Site description: Bowra is an Australian Wildlife Conservancy wildlife sanctuary located north-west of Cunnamulla. The property extends from the Warrego River floodplain in the east to a Mulga (Acacia aneura) dominated plateau in the west. The site receives intermittent, seasonal rainfall, and supports a mosaic of woodlands, shrublands, grasslands and riparian vegetation. Bowra provides breeding habitat and drought refuge for many semi-arid species, and is renowned for its bird diversity.

The dry sensors at Bowra are located in Mulga woodland. The wet sensors are located along an eastern tributary of the Warrego River.
