The present

Today the East Water Tower has been decommissioned but remains relevant through its continued use as a communications tower, cutting an imposing and iconic figure on the Bundaberg CBD skyline.

Standing eight storeys high, the tower's unique design ensures it continues to be adored by residents and visitors alike as a state heritage listed building and engineering marvel.
