As most people from Victoria are aware, we're on to Stage 3 water restrictions which mean washing cars is not allowed unless it's being done at a commerical car wash.

Hand-held hoses and high-pressure water cleaners cannot be used
any time for vehicle washing. A bucket, filled directly from a tap can be
used to clean windows, mirrors and lights; and spot-remove corrosive
A commercial car wash can be used.

I really wanted to detail the outside of my car, but since our water capacity is down to 38.7% it wouldn't be a smart idea.

With that being said, How has the restrictions effected your detailing process and what have you done to work around it?

I'm wondering if I should go to one of those self serve car washs now...

I do, as I cannot wash at my complex. It's not as convenient or as 'easy' on the paint as a good hand washing and if you go to one of those drive through places make sure it's touch free. I go to a place that has pressure wash handles and a brush.
