Charleville Water Tanks

For over a hundred years, Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Charleville residents can trust.
Citizens of Charleville know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water harvesting and water storage solutions.
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 assist them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
The administrative centre of the Shire of Murweh, Charleville is built on the banks of the Warrego River, and is the bilby capital of Australia.

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 rain is looked forward to in many areas across Queensland, excessive rain in a short period of time can build up on roads and paving, triggering flash flooding, which can damage houses, assets, and the local environment.
By attaching a roof gutter system, and linking it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and reduce the risk of flash flooding.
Severe flooding in Charleville is typically caused by the remnants of tropical cyclones in the summer months.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Australia is well-known for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us susceptible to regular bushfires and Charleville is no exception. While a lot of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily burn on the hotter days.

Southern Cross Water are professionals when it comes to fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help defend your property in the event of bushfire.
If your property is impacted by a bushfire, we recommend that you get your water assessed for safety prior to continuing to use it for potable or drinking purposes. The tank will still be suitable for watering gardens or fire protection.
The Charleville climate
Charleville houses a humid subtropical climate, verging on semi arid. Charleville experiences long hot summers, that can be humid or dry, depending on the direction of the wind.
Experiencing a smidge under 500mm of rain annually, Charleville relies on the Warrego river for much of its water supply.
Due to its dry climate close to water, much of the Charleville region is used for grazing of sheep and cattle.

Over 100 years of experience
The first Southern Cross windmill was manufactured 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 Charleville and Australia like our people do.
Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and since then Southern Cross has been home to more than 50 years of continued innovation.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it provided individuals with an effective and affordable way of storing substantial amounts of water, and several of these tanks still remain to this day.
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 anticipated the brand going on the become an iconic Australian company, still operation over a hundred years later.

Not only does Southern Cross still operate out of Loganholme, we are an Australian owned company, servicing Australians from all walks of life, including irrigators, families, schools and many more.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our rivals sustained a structural failure, causing the tank to burst, flooding somewhere around 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing destruction, and even washing away a family vehicle.

In the wake of this tragedy, the site’s developer turned to Southern Cross to build two new tanks on the site, and the quality of these Southern Cross tanks served to set the standard for many commercial projects from that point forward.
