    Haven't read any previous posts, but to the OP, I would hold off watering for now: the rains are coming. Wet season is just around the corner. Once you start getting the summer rains and growing season, then your grass will come back good as gold. Fertilise, then keep up the watering once it gets to sort of March/April, one or two good soakings once a week.

    I hate watering because it feels wasteful, but I get really disappointed in my brown lawn by November. I'll probably try grey water from my washing machine in a bit more earnest next year.

    Use grey water! You can washing machine water, bath or shower water. Check out where your plumbing pipes go to work out where the water is coming from.

    We are in Central Queensland also (Tieri) and we are allowed to water from 4-8pm Wednesday, Friday and Sunday - So our sprinklers go on at 3:55pm and turn off at 8pm these days. We also water by hand after mowing (1-2 times a week) we have been in our house for 5months and when we moved in it was brown and sharp but we now have beautiful green grass

    No. We stopped when nsw hit a huge low, we had massive water restrictions, you could only water on certain days between certain times, we had water restriction police patrolling and people were having "hose rage" lol
    We just got used to not using it and we only very occasionally do it know and never really wash our car. You don't see many people using sprinklers and such still and many stick to the restriction times to water. Lots of people have rain tanks now with sings advertising that's what they are using to water
