Water Bottle Re-use There are three Mt. Beerwah
Spring Water refill outlets throughout the festival. Please

Cheap refills are available at these outlets.
Water The festival’s reticulated water supply comes
from our own dam via an on-site water treatment plant.
The festival site water catchment is a well-protected native
vegetation area and treatment includes filtration and
chlorine disinfection. Our treated water meets Australian
Drinking Water Standards. QFF staff and Qld Government
inspectors monitor a range of indicators to ensure the water
supply is safe.
The festival has an onsite wastewater treatment plant. This
plant eliminates the carting of all wastewater from site
which reduces the QFF carbon-footprint by 11%. Treated
water is used for irrigation throughout the year.
Amenities cleaning teams use environmentally-friendly
cleaning products resulting in a reduction in energy and
chemicals used in wastewater treatment.
We have introduced a number of water-saving initiatives,
including pressure-reduction valves, spring-loaded taps,
low-flow shower heads and dual-flush cisterns in amenities
blocks. We appreciate your continued assistance in helping
us manage and maintain a self-sufficient water supply.
The protection and continued rehabilitation of the waterways
on the festival site is a priority. We ask that patrons be
aware of signed ‘storm water quality protection zones’ in
camping areas – please do not enter these zones.
