The Bureau of Meteorology’s Water Restrictions website provides access to current water restrictions information for the whole of Australia. Water restrictions information can be searched by State or Territory, water agency and restriction name. Water restriction names and rules vary throughout Australia due to local requirements.
This is the description for the Tamworth area (including Hills Plain) managed and maintained by the Tamworth Regional Council.
Sprinklers are banned, and hand held hoses can only be used for two hours a day, 5:00pm to 7:00pm EST or 6:00pm to 8:00pm in DST. You can only wash a vehicle with a hand hose and trigger nozzle between 5:00pm to 7:00pm EST or 6:00pm to 8:00pm DST but you can use a bucket anytime. You cannot wash down hard surfaces unless it's with a high pressure cleaner, and you can top up your pool but you need council permission to fill it
