Water Storage Challenges

While many people across our dry nation cherish the sight of showers, changing weather conditions, and modern infrastructure have resulted in increasing cases of storm water run off and flash flooding.
Installing a rain water tank and sufficient guttering can help alleviate overworked stormwater systems from some of the rainfall, and assisting to reduce the likelihood of flash flooding.
If a storm deposits 100mm of rainfall in Alstonville in a 24 hour period, just 100 homes equipped with water tanks can keep 2 million litres of water off of roads and storm drains.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is renowned across the globe for its long hot summers, and outside of 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 vulnerable to large scale wildfires.
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 safeguard your property from fire.
Steel water tanks are the most fire resistant on the market, however if a fire front has passed your tank, it is vital to have the water quality tested before drinking or washing with it. It will still be safe for gardens and fire fighting purposes.
The Alstonville climate
The town of Alstonville experiences a humid subtropical climate, typical of the central part of Australia’s eastern coast.
Summers are warm and wet, with roughly 40% of the town’s total annual precipitation occurring from December to March, coming in at an average annually of 1805mm.
The world’s first commercial orchard of macadamia trees was planted in the early 1880s by Charles Staff at Rous Mill, on the Alstonville plateau, 7 km south west of the centre of town.

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 one day 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.
Since then, Southern Cross has continued to provide Australian families and businesses with dependable and affordable water storage solutions, with many historic Southern Cross tanks still stand today.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy
When a small, freshly minted city called Toowoomba gave life to the Southern Cross brand over a century ago, there was no way they would have foreseen how far it would spread or how iconic it would become.
In the more than century since, Southern Cross has continued to operate out of Queensland headquarters, and has even regained Australian ownership.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Queensland sustained a structural failure, causing the tank to flood the nearby Kawana Way with somewhere around two and a half million litres of water, washing away a family vehicle and causing damage to the surroundings.

The site supervisor then looked to Southern Cross Water to help construct 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.

Alstonville Facts

Tibouchina ‘Alstonville’ is a small tree grown in many parts of Australia for its brilliant display of purple flowers in autumn. This variety along with the dwarf variety ‘Jules’ was developed by Ken Dunstan a resident of Alstonville, hence the name.
The village was originally known as “Duck Creek Mountain” after Duck Creek, which flows along the southern edge of town eventually merging with Emigrant Creek and the Richmond River. The name was given by the cedar cutters because of the abundance of wild duck on the upper tidal reaches of the creek.
What to do in Alstonville
Located south of Alstonville, the Dalwood Falls are worth visiting for their peacefulness and their idyllic location in the rainforest. Although often referred to as dangerous, they are hugely popular with local youth who enjoy jumping from the sheer cliffs into the pool below the falls.
