Today we’re not just going to talk about the wonderful weather, but also about a question which comes up again and again between tourists and backpackers: Can you drink australian tap water? The answer: Yes… and No… and probably both… It depends on the local water quality. Generally (and hopefully!) you will be informed if the water is not drinkable. But even then the water could have a strong taste of chlorine or salt. Furthermore, water from the outback can contain more minerals than an untrained stomach could handle. To tackle these and any other potential problems the easiest solution is to just buy a $12 water filter like the one we found and enjoy your water no matter where you are ? Cheers from Down Under ?
