Cloncurry Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been supplying water tanks Cloncurry locals can put faith in.
Cloncurry residents know that they have the backing and support of one of the most iconic names in Australian water storage and water solutions.
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.
Built mainly as a town to service local mines, Cloncurry has twice won Queensland’s Friendliest Town award, and is considered one of the most livable inland towns in the country.

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 ecosystem.
By attaching a roof gutter system, and connecting it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and minimise the likelihood of flash flooding.
Whilst typically quite dry, Cloncurry has been known to experience heavy downfalls a couple of times per decade, with Monsoonal rain in 2019 causing flash flooding across the region, and closing roads in the town.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Due to Australia’s climate of long hot summers, bushfires are a consistent danger, and Cloncurry is no exception. Despite having much of the rainfall coming in the summer months, this can lead to longer grasses which freely catch alight.

Thankfully, Southern Cross are the fire tank specialists, and can fit your residence or commercial space with a fire tank to protect your property at the time of wildfires.
If your property is impacted by a bushfire, we recommend that you get your water tested for safety before continuing to use it for potable or drinking purposes. The tank will still be appropriate for watering gardens or fire protection.
The Cloncurry climate
Cloncurry hosts a hot semi-arid climate, and was for along time famous for recording Australia’s hottest ever temperature. Whilst that myth has long since been debunked, Cloncurry still frequently registers temperatures well in excess of 40 degrees.
Cloncurry averages just over 500mm of annual rainfall, which typically falls in the summer months. The area is so dry, that in extreme cases, whole months can pass without a drop of rain.
Due to local water sources keeping grasses in the area growing, Cloncurry is well serviced by a cattle grazing industry, which has taken over from the once productive uranium mines in the region.

Over 100 years of experience
The first 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 Cloncurry and Australia like we do.
Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and ever since Southern Cross has been home to over 50 years of continued innovation.
The first Squatter Tanks provided Australians with effecting and affordable ways of capturing and storing large amounts of water– some of these tanks still endure today!
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, servicing Australians from all walks of life, from rural families, to irrigators, to business on industrial sites– even educational institutions.
Reliable in a pinch
In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our competitors suffered a structural failure, leading the tank to rupture, flooding roughly 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing destruction, and even washing away a family vehicle.

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