Gympie water – I’ll drink it

I FOR one can't believe Gympie and Rainbow Beach's water supply didn't perform better in yesterday's Queensland Water water tasting competition.

The event was held at the Gympie Civic Centre and our water was put up against six other water treatment plants from around Wide Bay.

Bundaberg's Lover's Way treatment plant was judged the winner.

I go to Bundaberg regularly and I can say I would prefer Gympie's water any day of the week.

I must be drinking from Bundy's other plant which came last in the regional taste test.

By far and away my favourite water around the region is at Rainbow Beach. On good days it rivals bottled water.

I'm told the water needs hardly any treatment because it is filtered by tonnes of fine sand.

It's a great drop and worthy of a prize.

Do you think Gympie's water tastes good?
