Join Central Highlands Water this Ballarat Begonia Festival to learn more about the importance of staying hydrated.
This year Ballarat Begonia Festival visitors will have a chance to meet celebrity guests and get involved in competitions, with thanks to Central Highlands Water who is once again the festival’s key Community Partner.
Local sports stars – and Central Highlands Water ambassadors – from the Ballarat Miners and Rush, and ACU Sovereigns will be on hand at the Main Lawn with the popular Be Smart Choose Tap water bottles.
The mist water bottles will be available to purchase for $5 each, with all money raised donated to WaterAid.
Central Highlands Water also presents GROW with popular television personality Costa Georgiadis, who will speak with audiences about how to grow water efficient gardens at home.
Ensure you stay hydrated throughout the three-day event by filling up your water bottle at one of the numerous Central Highlands Water Taps located throughout the Ballarat Botanical Gardens.
Central Highlands Water supplies water and sewerage services to more than 140,000 people across the Ballarat region.
