Beaudesert Water Tanks

For water tanks Beaudesert can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply top-notch water storage solutions for over a century.
People of Beaudesert know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water collection and water storage solutions.

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.

Some 70kms from Brisbane, Beaudesert was once the terminal of the Beaudesert Railway Line, originally host to important passenger services before cars gained popularity and the line became mostly used for cattle until it closed in 1996.

Water Tank Sizes

With a range of tank sizes from 26kL – 600kL in our rural tanks, and from 12kL – 1900kL in our commercial tanks (with sizes outside this range available on request) you can rest assured that we have the right size tank to suit your water storage needs.

Water Storage Challenges

While lots of folks delight in rainfall, thanks to modern infrastructure like roads and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local environment.
If you set up a water tank and connect it up to a guttering system, you can help minimise the build up of water from rainwater run off, and reduce the risk of flash flooding.
Desert being in the town’s name is no indication of the climate in the area, with numerous documented floods in the area since its gazetting, with many recounts of people, animals and homes being swept away.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Unfortunately, as a result of much of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a steady risk in the long, hot summers, and Beaudesert is no different. Despite most of the region’s rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and warm days can easily cause brushfires.

Thankfully, at Southern Cross we consider ourselves specialists when it concerns fire tanks, and we can fit your property or home with an appropriate fire tank to help safeguard you from bushfires.
After a bushfire travels through your property, Southern Cross encourages that you have your water tank assessed for water safety if you’re planning to continue using it for household water. It will continue to be safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Beaudesert climate
Much like other areas in the South East, Beaudesert is located in a humid subtropical climate, with warm wet summers, and cooler, drier winters.

Beaudesert averages a  generous 907mm of rainfall annually, and with low lying water nearby decommissioned Nindooinbah Dam, and newly completed Wyaralong Dam  less than 15kms from the town, the soil remains verdant and rich.

Thanks to the favourable conditions, Beaudesert remains home to many crops and cattle, along with hobby farms despite the town’s growth to a population of over 6000 and the urban sprawl from Logan City and Brisbane.

Over 100 years of experience

From the very first Southern Cross windmill coming off the Toowoomba Foundry line in 1903, and the first Southern Cross Water Tank over 100 years ago, nobody has expertise like we do of dealing with Beaudesert and Australia’s unique water storage needs.

Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and ever since Southern Cross has been home to over 5 decades of ongoing innovation.
When the first Squatter Tanks – some of which still endure today – were implemented in Australia, it allowed people an inexpensive and practical way of capturing storing large volumes of water.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the Griffiths family formed the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they almost certainly didn’t know that it would go on to end up being such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a hundred years in the future.

Southern Cross is proud to remain Australian owned and operated, with our head office still located in Loganholme, and supporting all manner of Australians, from urban commercial sites, to schools and universities, to growers, rural families and irrigators.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital 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 car and causing damage to the surroundings.

In the wake of the disaster, 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 measure for future commercial projects to comply to.
