Contradiction Well is an example of many such wells sunk by the Government in the early 1900s to cater for the needs of miners/prospectors and their animals.
It was probably dug to a depth of about 100 metres and water was brought to the surface by windlass and bucket.
The reports of the various trips, tours and travels on the Adventures website have a lot of information about place names – their naming and features – toponymy. More information.
