Traditionally bushwalkers in Tassie took a short length of tube to siphon water from yabby holes etc. Unlike South Australia, you generally don't have to carry a lot of water when you are walking in the wetter parts of Tassie.

An alternative to carting water and having to take out you containers, is to use a LifeStraw I have used one in Borneo and found it useful. I even drank from th Kinabatangan River with no ill effects. LifeStraws are a useful tool for the traveling birder.
