Beerwah Water Tanks

For water tanks Beerwah can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply quality water storage solutions for over a century.
People from Beerwah can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
The populace of Queensland understand their water storage requirements, and due to this, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to support them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
A short trip down the Bruce Highway from landmarks such as Bribie Island and Brisbane, Beerwah is home to major tourist attraction Australia Zoo, as well as beautiful bushwalks and mountain hikes, while being a short drive from beaches across the Sunshine Coast.

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 plenty of folk delight in rainfall, due to modern infrastructure like roads and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which can be harmful to homes and the local 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 lessen the risk of flash flooding.
In 2015 Beerwah and many of its surrounding towns and shires were subject to flooding in the aftermath of thunderstorms that delivered parts of the sunshine coast 300mm of rain in as little as a three hour period.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Regrettably, thanks to much of Australia’s enviable climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Beerwah is no different. Despite much of the region’s rains coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and scorching days can easily result in brushfires.
Nevertheless, Southern Cross are the fire tank specialists, and can thoroughly and efficiently fit your property or residence with a fire tank to help protect you from wildfires.
If a bushfire has passed through your property, it is highly recommended that you get your water quality checked for safety if you wish to carry on using it for household water. However it will still be safe for gardening or fire protection.
The Beerwah climate
Beerwah, like most of the Sunshine Coast, lies within a humid subtropical climate region, resulting in wet warm summers, and drier, more mild winters.
Beerwah receives significant annual rainfall, with an average yearly precipitation of over 1600mm, with over 40mm on average falling even in the driest month of the year.
This sustained rainfall and warm temperatures resulted in Beerwah being home to plentiful pineapple and macadamia plantations.

Over 100 years of experience

The original Southern Cross windmill was produced in the Toowoomba Foundry in 1903, and not far behind was the first Southern Cross water tank, meaning nobody knows the unique storage needs of Beerwah 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 sixties.
When the original Squatter Tanks – some of which still endure today – were implemented in Australia, it allowed people an affordable and practical way of capturing storing large volumes of water.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the Southern Cross brand was born of the Toowoomba Foundry, there was no little chance the Griffiths family could have foreseen the brand going on the become an iconic Australian business, still operation over a hundred years later.

Southern Cross is an Australian owned brand, and we still operate out of Loganholme to this day, assisting Australians from all walks of life, from rural families, to irrigators, to business on commercial sites – even schools and universities.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital sustained a structiral 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 destruction to the surroundings.

After this, the site developer contacted Southern Cross to engineer and build two new tanks for the site, and the quality of these tanks have become a yardstick for many commercial projects from that point to comply with.

Beerwah Local Knowledge

The town is named for the largest mountain in the nearby Glass House Mountain range, Mount Beerwah. Unfortunately access to the Mount Beerwah summit route has been closed since 2008 due to the erosion and destabilisation of some walking tracks, leading to a high risk of rock fall.
