Beachmere Water Tower

Our community artwork program transforms reservoirs, water towers and pump stations across Moreton Bay, Noosa and the Sunshine Coast.

Our latest project was our Beachmere Water Tower, located at the Beachmere Road/Bishop Road roundabout. Beachmere was our 17th artwork delivered across the Unitywater network. Our artists, The Brightsiders, completed the tower’s transformation in late May 2021, coinciding with the community's 150th-anniversary celebration of the seaside town.

The community decided!

We asked the community to vote for their favourite of two designs The Brightsiders created, based on earlier community feedback, and the clear winner was Coastal Wildlife. The design features a colourful display of local wildlife, capturing the community appeal of Beachmere. During the voting period, the community told us they’d prefer to see the more locally common yellow-tailed black cockatoo on the tower rather than the red-tailed variety used in the design. So, we updated the artwork accordingly! Now that the tower is transformed, we’d love to hear your thoughts via the feedback tab below.

    With so many great suggestions from the Beachmere residents for the water tower design ,Why are there only two to choose from? Neither of which are very striking .

    Thank you for your feedback about the Beachmere Water Tower artwork project.

    Late last year we called for ideas from the community regarding what they would like to see on the tower. You can see the ideas we received here. Based on this feedback, we asked our artists to prepare two designs that reflected the ideas. While many designs could have been developed, we are comfortable that the two prepared incorporate community feedback in diverse ways.

    Thanks again for your feedback.
