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.
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.
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.
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.
For more than half a century, we at Southern Cross have produced premium quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australian families and businesses, and all Southern Cross tanks have a 30+ year design life.
At Southern Cross, we specialise not only in the design and manufacture of world wide water storage systems, but also the installation and service life. We take pride in the quality and design of our fire storage tanks.
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.
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.
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.
