Burnett Heads Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been providing water tanks Burnett Heads residents can put faith in.
People from Burnett Heads can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
The populace of Queensland are mindful of their water storage requirements, and due to this, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
Burnett Heads is a coastal locality built on the mouth of the Burnett River, less than 20km North of the regional city of Bundaberg.

Water Storage Challenges

While most people delight in rainfall, as a result of modern infrastructure like roadways and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local environment.
Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help reduce the amount of water accumulating from stormwater run-off, and help reduce the likelihood of flash flooding.
Heavy rainfall in the Burnett Heads area can lead to water runoff filling the Burnett River and causing it to break its banks. In 2013, just 8 days out from Australia Day, widespread storms and even tornadoes caused damage to homes and infrastructure.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is well-known for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us prone to frequent bushfires and Burnett Heads is no exception. Although much of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this leads to lush grasses that can easily burn on the hotter days.
The good news is, Southern Cross are the fire tank experts, and can fit your home or industrial space with a fire tank to protect your property at the time of wildfires.
After a bushfire it is highly recommended to get your water examined for safety if you’re going to be utilising it for potable or drinking water. Having said that it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Burnett Heads climate
Burnett Heads is home to a humid subtropical climate, with mild winters and hot, wet summers. The Bundaberg region 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 Burnett Heads’ rainfall comes in its wet season, or the summer months, with over 500mm typically falling between December and February.
While many in Burnett Heads work in the mining industry, the town also boasts a number of fishing and agricultural jobs, thanks to the climate and conditions in the area.

Over 100 years of experience

From the very first Southern Cross windmill wheeling off the Toowoomba Foundry line in 1903, and the original Southern Cross Water Tank over 100 years ago, nobody has expertise like we do of dealing with Burnett Heads 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 half a century of continued innovation.
When the original 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 first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over an a century ago, there was no way the Griffiths family anticipated the brand to grow to become an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

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

When a water tank constructed by one of our competitors at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered structural failure in 2015, the tank burst, inundating Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, resulting in damaging flooding, and even sweeping away a family vehicle.

After this catastrophe, the sites developer looked to Southern Cross to design and manufacture two new water storage tanks for the site, and the requirements and quality these tanks had to conform to set the requirement for many subsequent commercial projects.
