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.

Watering a sports ground using sprinklers is only allowed every alternate day before 9am or after 6pm. Watering a synthetic sporting ground is not permitted except for 10 minutes or less before a sport is played or practised on the sporting ground.
DOMESTIC BORE WATER USE (Stage 1)
Using bore water is only permitted every alternate day either before 9 am or after 6 pm based on the last digit of your house number. Where there is no house number, the lot number is to be used.
The Department of Water administers a licensing system for other bore users (including local government, schools, sporting grounds and industry). Licences issued by the Department of Water specify the terms and conditions of using groundwater for uses other than garden bores.
