For over a hundred years, Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Bundaberg residents can trust.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Southern Cross have been supplying the finest quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australians for over 50 years, and all of our 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
