Nambucca Heads Water Tanks

When it comes to water tanks Nambucca Heads 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 recognise the importance of quality water storage solutions, and there remains no better than a water tank.
Within the design and manufacture of every Southern Cross water tank lies over 150 years of experience in assisting Australians with their water harvesting needs.
Nambucca Heads is a town on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia in the Nambucca Valley. It is located on a ridge, north of the estuary of the Nambucca River near the Pacific Highway.

Water Storage Challenges

In a country that is known for being as dry as Australia, it is no wonder that many people take delight at the idea of rainfall, however changing weather conditions that result in unpredictable storms, coupled with modern infrastructure such as roads and footpaths can lead to storm water run off and flash flooding.
A rain water tank, along with ample guttering can hemp to prevent some of this water from entering streets and stormwater systems, helping decrease the risk of stormwater run off.
If a storm deposits 100mm of rainfall in Nambucca Heads in a 24 hour period, just 100 dwellings equipped with rain water tanks can keep 2 million litres of water off of roads and storm drains.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
The beautiful hot summers of Australia come with the risk of the bushfires that spread across the country almost every summer, some worst that others. These are an unfortunate disadvantage of living on the driest (non icy) continent on the planet.
Southern Cross Water are experts when it comes to the design, manufacture and installation of fire protection water tanks, and our tank install crews are ready to help protect your property from fire.
After a bushfire, we advise that your water tank be assessed for safety if it is going to be used for showering or drinking, but the great advantage of a steel water tank is that it will likely still be safe for gardening or fire protection.
The Nambucca Heads climate
Nambucca Heads has a warm and temperate climate, with most of its rainfall coming in the warmer months.
Nambucca Heads experiences plentiful rainfall with an average of just under 1000mm.
This climate and beautiful beaches, and proximity to national parks, has made Nambucca Heads an attractive tourist location.

Over 100 years of experience

Way back in 1871, a Mr George Washington Griffiths established an ironmongery and mechanical repair shop in Toowoomba that would go on to become Southern Cross Windmills.

The first windmill that was Southern Cross by name was produced in 1903, and what followed was a suite of water harvesting products including Southern Cross pumps and water tanks.
Southern Cross have continued to help provide affordable and dependable water storage solutions to Australian businesses and families, with many historic Southern Cross tanks still standing to this day.
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 amazed of what an icon the little windmill company they built has become.
Over one hundred years later, Southern Cross Water Tanks still operates out of – and manufactures 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 developer then looked to Southern Cross, in the wake of this tragedy, to help build two new tanks for the site, and these Southern Cross tanks were built to such a standard that they set a benchmark for many commercial and industrial projects to this day.
