Where is the oldest water tower located in Queensland?

Answer: Bundaberg East Water Tower (1902)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.
