Whilst sheep stations do draw water from rivers such as the Darling River for uses near the river well away from the river they have to rely on underground aquifers (bore water). Most water is pumped these days using solar powered pumps into tanks such as the one in the WS and then fed by pipes to nearby watering troughs for sheep to drink from. In the past pumping was done using windmills.
Naturally wild animals such as kangaroos also enjoy the water as do feral animals such as wild pigs.
