Beachmere Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been providing water tanks Beachmere locals can put faith in.
People from Beachmere can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
Many Queensland residents still look to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs, because they are mindful of their water storage requirements, and reliability.
On the banks of the Moreton Bay, Beachmere was named meaning “a beach upon marshy ground,” and is named after a property owned by Thomas Edwin Bonney, believed to be the first settler in the area.

Water Storage Challenges

Rain is a refreshing sight for most people across Queensland, but due to modernised conveniences such as roads and paving, large amounts of rain can lead to flash flooding, damaging homes and the ecosystem.
By installing a roof gutter system, and connecting it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and moderate the risk of flash flooding.
Despite not being near any inland rivers, Beachmere can experience significant water runoff when there is heavy rain for a few days at a time – such as in the wet season – and it can rush into homes and property.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is renowned for its long hot summers, but sadly this leaves us prone to regular bushfires and Beachmere is no exception. While much of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily burn on the hotter days.
However, Southern Cross are the fire tank specialists, and can effectively and efficiently fit your property or home with a fire tank to help protect you from wildfires.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross advises that you have your water tank assessed for water safety if you’re going to continue using it for drinkable water. It will remain safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Beachmere climate
Beachmere, like much the Sunshine Coast and its surrounding towns and suburbs has a humid sub-tropical climate, with warm, humid summers, and mild to cold winters.
Much of Beachmere’s significant rainfall comes in the summer months, with more than one third of the total rainfall falling between December and January.
Beachmere has a strong agricultural and tourism sector, and is bolstered by a strong construction sector as the area grows.

Over 100 years of experience

The original Southern Cross windmill was manufactured in the Toowoomba Foundry in 1903, and not far behind was the first Southern Cross water tank, meaning nobody knows the extraordinary storage needs of Beachmere and Australia like we do.

Southern Cross has been home to more than 5 decades of innovation when it comes to Bolted Steel Round Water Tanks, with our first model being built in the late 60’s.
Squatter Tanks were a revolutionary way for Australians to store vast amounts of water in an effecting and economical manner – some of these tanks are still standing to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

There was not a chance anyone could have predicted the birth of an Australian icon when the Griffiths family watched the very first windmill roll off the Toowoomba Foundry line over a century ago.

As an Australian owned brand who still operate out of Loganholme to this day, Southern Cross is proud to help all manner of Australians with their water storage needs, from farms and irrigators to commercial sites and mine projects.
Reliable in a pinch

Disaster struck the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, when a water tank built by one of our competitors suffured a catastrophic structural failure, bursting the tanks and washing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family vehicle.

In the wake of the misfortune, the developer of the University Hospital site enlisted Southern Cross to engineer and manufacture two new water storage tanks for the site, and the high standard engineering for those tanks has since become a standard for future commercial projects to comply to.
