The UNSW Wellington Research Station enables the investigation and monitoring of groundwater resources in fractured rocks at sites that lie at the margin of two important climate belts; the winter dominated rainfall belt to the south and the summer dominated rainfall belt to the north.  A bore field of over 40 bores was installed in both alluvial sediments and the adjacent fractured Ordovician volcanic rock. Abstraction bores in both aquifers facilitate experiments such as aquifer tests (pumping tests) and tracer experiments.

The Wellington Field Station has been widely utilised by national researchers from the University of New South Wales, Macquarie University, the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, ANSTO and international researchers from the United Kingdom. It also facilitates undergraduate hydrogeology and environmental geophysics field training.
