Cowarie Station most commonly known as Cowarie is a pastoral lease that operates as a cattle station in north east South Australia.

The property is located 216 kilometres (134 mi) north of Marree and 225 kilometres (140 mi) south west of Birdsville. The Diamantina River merges with the Mulligan River on Cowarie forming the Warburton River which continues to flow to the south west and into Lake Eyre.

Mirra Mitta Bore

The bore was sunk in 1903 as part of the governments plan to sink bores along the Birdsville-Marree stock route in order to provide a permanent water supply. The bore is over 1,000 metres (3,281 ft) deep and is popular stopping place along the Birdsville Track. The bore site consists of a horizontal pipe from a borehead discharging hot artesian water in a circular pond about 5 metres (16 ft) in diameter. The waters then flow along a bore drain.
