East Bundaberg Water Tower

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The East Water Tower is a heritage-listed water tower at 17 Sussex Street, Bundaberg East and is a must-visit as it is believed to be the only circular brick tower in Queensland. Given Bundaberg’s relatively flat terrain, this tower is the perfect example of late 19th-century technology – using the increased water pressure provided by the tower in order to allow the reticulated water system to flow through efficiently.

The East Water Tower demonstrates Bundaberg’s development as a major regional city serving one of Queensland’s most significant sugar growing districts

The East Bundaberg Water Tower is only a couple of minutes walk from Lake Ellen Heritage Hub.

Although no longer open for public tours, you can experience a virtual tour online.
