> I was in this area last week & went in yesterday to check & if necessary update some map features. I found that this tower is currently mapped as a water_tower https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/740880328#map=19/-28.21438/152.86816. Well, yes, it is as it has a water tank on top, but it also supports various mobile phone & TV antennae, so what should it be?

I would map it based on the primary purpose, which is a water tower.
If it has mobile phone antennas attached you can map these with
"communication:mobile_phone=yes" (I do this where you have a building
with a mobile phone antenna on the roof).
