Emergency Relief - Water

water shower

We're all hoping for some decent rain soon, but for those in our hinterland community who may be running short of water, we have water stations available to fill household containers.

Noosa Council doesn't regulate the water carrier sector or what they charge. Please see the information below on how to obtain water supplies for household use.

  • For those who are struggling with having enough water during drought conditions, here are maps showing the locations of taps where water containers can be filled. Council prefers that the taps shown on the maps are the only taps that should be used to fill water containers.

    Other taps are not suitable for a variety of reasons. Please remember to take only what water is really needed. Using too much will reduce water pressure across Noosa Shire. Please fill up using domestic-size containers only (up to 1000L).

  • Hinterland:

    Cooroy RV site:

    Tap at the entry that can fill up containers in addition to the paid Unity Water sites
