Pretty sure that'd be water though.
To turn the gas off, find your gas meter box there will be a small valve, either a small handle with "open/close" or a thumb turn type valve.

Thanks heaps Nath, you thinking about it ... it does make more sense to turn both services off! Otherwise I might be blown into next week.
Yes, as I mentioned in my earlier post.
And mine

Its not always easy to reapply a cap without it leaking.
If its gas use soapy water spray and look for bubbles.
If its water lots of teflon tape.

I would use the get some one to tap on the pipe while someone has there ear pressed against another tap first.
A lot less hassle.

Good points, but I don't think he can do the ear thing, because he doesn't know where any other part of the pipe is.
If you do turn the water and gas off to remove cap to see, don't forget to relight any pilot lights you have for heaters or gas hot water.

Belated reply! Come up with another way of checking if gas or water....
Went up in the ceiling, followed gas pipe in ceiling T off hot water service, a T off to the oven a T off to the gas heater and then end goes towards and down the double brick and loose site of it.
BUT it running right down to where it terminates as in the pic, seems to make sense to me now that it is natural gas! There is no other gas connection on the other side of the brick and it is going to the right place.
Now to pickup a NG Weber Family Q3200 :)

You'll also need a plumber to fit a gas bayonet onto it as the end of the Weber Natural Gas hose is like in the picture below.

G'day
I brought a house with a natural gas 4 burner. I was always underwhelmed by it and had it disconnected and used my three burner on bottles cause it had a bit of umph.
5 years ago I brought a weberQ 200 my gas consumption dropped to 2 and a bit 8.5 kg bottles a year ! And my use went up
They are a top little cooker.
A Q200 a single burner but the family's a 2 burner I recon you'll get around the loss of "umph" of natural gas.
Im spending say $50 bucks a year on bottled gas so what are you going not to use? I recon you make up that extra few bucks for the natural gas version.
Regards dave

I had 4 burner that I converted to NG and could never get all 4 burners going even 2 was a struggle
Then I bought the NG Q320 and it works great. Plus I never have to buy bottled gas for it or worry that I'll run out

I would get a plumber out first to fit the bayonet, you'll need to get one out anyway, and there is a small chance it could still be water and you don't want a bbq you can't use and then have to go through the hassle of trying to exchange.
