Crescent Head Water Tanks

Crescent Head is a town on the Tasman Sea coast, 340 km north-northeast of Sydney, in Kempsey Shire. Crescent Head was officially declared a village in 1894, but the first mention of Crescent Head had appeared in 1833 from the NSW Calendar and General Post Office Directory.
When it involves water tanks Crescent Head can have faith in, look no further than Southern Cross Water.
Like much of the rest of this dry nation of ours, people of New South Wales understand the importance of high quality water storage solutions, and there remains no better than a water tank.
Every Southern Cross water tank that gets installed has the backing of over 150 years of Australian innovation and water harvesting expertise.

Southern Cross Water Tanks come in a range from 26kL – 600kL in our rural rainwater tanks, and 12kL – 1900kL in our commercial water storage tanks (with sizes outside this range available on request).

Water Storage Challenges

In a country that is known for being as dry as Australia, it is no wonder that most people take delight at the idea of rainfall, however changing weather conditions that result in unpredictable storms, coupled with modern infrastructure like roads and footpaths can lead to storm water run off and flash flooding.
Thanks to the amount of rainwater that can be harvested from a roof with adequate guttering, installing a water tank can help relieve some of the stress on stormwater systems.
If a sudden weather event drops 100mm of rain in Crescent Head in just 24 hours, it would tank only 100 houses equipped with water tanks to keep 2 million litres of water from running down roads and filling storm drains.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is renowned across the globe for its long warm summers, and barring the uninhabitable Antarctica, is the driest continent on the planet. Pairing this with the way many Australian plants behave, much of New South Wales is prone to large scale wildfires.
At Southern Cross, we consider ourselves to be experts in the fire tank sector, and we can fit your home, property or business with an appropriate water storage facility to help protect from fire.
Steel water tanks are the most fire resistant on the market, however if a fire front has passed your tank, it is important to have the water quality tested before drinking or washing with it. It will still be safe for gardens and fire fighting purposes.
The Crescent Head climate
Crescent Head like much of the surrounding area lies in a sub-tropical climate region, with warm, humid summers, and mild to cool winters.
Kempsey experiences rainfall most of the year round, with an annual rainfall of over 1000mm .
Crescent Head, despite its climate, never had much industry outside of tourism, and thanks to peoples unwillingness to turn South when driving North, remains a hidden gem.

Over 100 years of experience

An Englishman with a passion for innovation by the name of George Washington Griffiths established an ironmongery and mechanical repair shop in 1871 in Toowoomba that would go on to become what is today known as Southern Cross.

The first Southern Cross Windmill rolled off the Toowoomba Foundry line in 1903, and the Griffiths brothers established a knack for water, with pumps, tanks and further windmills following.
Ever since then, Southern Cross Water has continued to be committed to providing Australians functional and cost-effective water storage solutions– the fact that several of the original squatter tanks still stand today is proof of this drive for quality and success.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

With Southern Cross windmills and water tanks dotted all over this large nation of ours, the Griffiths brothers would surely be proud and impressed of what an icon the little windmill company they built has become.

Over a century later, Southern Cross Water Tanks still operates out of– and produces all of our water tanks in– our Queensland headquarters to this day.
Reliable in a pinch

When a water tank suffered a structural failure at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, it showed how important tank integrity is, as two and a half million litres of water washed a passenger vehicle off of nearby Kawana Way.

The site supervisor then turned to Southern Cross Water to help develop a new pair of tanks on the site, with a much higher level of scrutiny, and the quality of these Southern Cross water tanks have since served to set a benchmark for many commercial projects to this day.
