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.
Outside watering with sprinklers and fixed hoses is not allowed during the heat of the day. In other words, you can use sprinklers and fixed hoses after 4:00pm and before 9:00am during Eastern Standard Time (EST) and after 6:00pm and before 8:00am in Daylight Saving Time (DST). Hand held hoses with trigger nozzles and buckets or watering cans may used for watering of lawns, gardens and vehicle washing at any time while Permanent or Normal water rules are in place. Residents are reminded that trigger nozzles should be use on all hoses to help conserve supplies and avoid waste.
