Bundaberg Water Tanks

For over a hundred years, Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Bundaberg residents can trust.

Residents of Bundaberg can be comfortable knowing that they have the backing of one of Australia’s most iconic companies when it comes to water storage and water solutions.
Due to many people in Bundaberg being mindful of their water harvesting and water storage needs, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their needs.
A small coastal city, Bundaberg is the business centre for the major sugar cane growing region, and is known well for its namesakes Bundaberg Rum and Bundaberg Brewed Drinks

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 most people delight in rainfall, due to modern infrastructure like roads and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local environment.

Installing a rainwater tank, with a connected roof gutter system can help in reducing the amount of rainwater run-off and help decrease the likelihood of flash flooding.

Heavy rainfall in Bundaberg can often lead to flash flooding, and as recently as 2017, over 300mm of rain in a 24 hour period left thousands of homes in the city without power, as floods spread through the area.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Australia is famous for its long hot summers, but sadly this leaves us prone to frequent bushfires and Bundaberg is no different. Although a lot of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this leads to lush grasses that can easily ignite on the warmer days.

However, Southern Cross are the fire tank experts, and can effectively 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 advised that you get your water quality assessed for safety if you intend to carry on using it for household water. Having said that it will still be safe for gardening or fire protection.
The Bundaberg climate

Bundaberg is home to a humid subtropical climate, with mild winters and hot, wet summers. Bundaberg has the most equable climate in Australia, meaning it has the most consistent year round temperatures in the country.

Prone to heavy rainfall, most of Bundaberg’s rainfall comes in its wet season, or the summer months, with over 500mm typically falling between December and February.
Due to its favourable weather conditions, as well as Bundaberg’s flourishing sugar cane crops, the region is also home to many fruit and vegetable plantations.

Over 100 years of experience

Over 100 years ago, the first Southern Cross water tank was manufactured by the Griffiths family, after they had experienced success with their Southern Cross windmills in 1903. This gives Southern Cross one-of-a-kind perspective and experience in handling Australian and Bundaberg water storage requirements.

In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have welcomed over half a century of innovation and improvement since then.
When the original Squatter Tanks – some of which still endure today – were implemented in Australia, it allowed people an inexpensive and functional way of capturing storing large volumes of water.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over an a century ago, there was no way the Griffiths family expected the brand to grow to develop into an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

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

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered 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.

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.

Bundaberg Local Knowledge

Bundaberg derived its name from the local Taribelang kinship group’s name bunda and the Saxon suffix berg meaning Town, translating to The Town of Bunda.

The 1989 film The Delinquens starring Kylie Minogue was set in Bundaberg.
