Crows Nest Water Tanks

For water tanks Crows Nest can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply quality water storage solutions for over a century.
Citizens of Crows Nest know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water collection and water storage solutions.

People in Crows Nest are mindful of their water storage requirements, and because of this, many have, and still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs.

Crows Nest is a long standing farming community, and has a variety of produce, from livestock to fruit and vegetables.

Water Storage Challenges

Despite many people still delighting in rainfall, due to modern infrastructure, like bitumen and concrete, large amounts of rain can build up, causing flash flooding, which can cause damage to homes and the environment.

If you set up a water tank and connect it up to a guttering system, you can help lessen the build up of water from rainwater run off, and lessen the risk of flash flooding.

Usually more immune to flooding than it’s neighbouring towns and shires, in 2011, even Crows Nest couldn’t escape flash flooding from tearing through its streets, with many residents remarking they had never seen the water so high.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Due to Australia’s climate of long hot summers, bushfires are a constant danger, and Crows Nest is no different. Despite much of the rainfall coming in the summer months, this can lead to longer grasses which easily catch alight.

Nevertheless, Southern Cross are the fire tank specialists, and can thoroughly and proficiently fit your property or residence with a fire tank to help protect you from wildfires.
After a bushfire it is recommended to get your water checked for safety if you’re going to be using it for potable or drinking water. However it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Crows Nest climate
Crows Nest has a temperate climate, with mild to warm summers, with the weather rarely exceeding 35 degrees in the summer, and not often dropping below 5 degrees in the winter.
Crows Nest gets plentiful rainfall all year round usually clocking up over 900mm of annual rainfall, keeping the area green and lush.
Thanks to this plentiful rainfall, Crows Nest is a great candidate for growing all manner of fruit and vegetables, and also for graziers and livestock farming.

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 experience like we do of working with Crows Nest and Australia’s unique water storage needs.

With the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank being produced by Southern Cross in the late 60’s, we’ve been a haven for over fifty years of continued innovation.
Squatter Tanks were a cutting edge way for Australians to store vast amounts of water in an effecting and economical manner – some of these tanks are still standing to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the Griffiths family formed the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they surely didn’t know that it would go on to become such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a hundred years later.

Southern Cross is an Australian owned brand, and we still operate out of Loganholme to this day, assisting Australians from all walks of life, from rural families, to irrigators, to business on industrial sites– even schools and universities.
Reliable in a pinch

Misfortune struck the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, when a water tank built by one of our rivals suffured a catastrophic structural failure, bursting the tanks and washing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family vehicle.

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

Crows Nest Factoid

There is some debate as to how Crows Nest got its name. Some reports suggest that the name was adapted from the indigenous name for the area Tookoogandanna, roughly translating as “the home of crows” . Others suggest that the name was given to the town after a local indigenous man called Jimmy Crow who lived in a tree near the police station, that people called “Crow’s Nest,”

There is a sculpture of Jimmy Crow in the Centenary Park, carved from a single block of Helidon freestone, and weighing in at over a ton.
