Cunnamulla Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been offering water tanks Cunnamulla residents can put faith in.
People from Cunnamulla can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
Many Queensland residents still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs, because they are mindful of their water storage requirements, and reliability.
Built on the banks of the Warrego River, Cunnamulla is the administrative centre for the Paroo Shire, which covers an area of over forty five thousand square kilometers.

Water Storage Challenges

While rain is looked forward to in many areas across Queensland, too much rain in a short period of time can build up on roads and paving, generating flash flooding, which can damage houses, assets, and the local environment.
Installing a rainwater tank, with a connected roof gutter system can help reduce the amount of rainwater run-off and help decrease the likelihood of flash flooding.
Cunnamulla has experienced flooding on several occasions, with the most recent major flooding occurring in 2012. With flood a constant threat, an 11m high levee protects the town.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Australia is well-known for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us susceptible to frequent bushfires and Cunnamulla is no different. Although much of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily burn on the hotter days.

Thankfully, at Southern Cross we consider ourselves experts when it comes to fire tanks, and we can provide your property or home with an adequate fire tank to help safeguard you from bushfires.
If a bushfire has passed through your property, it is highly recommended that you get your water quality assessed for safety if you intend to continue using it for household water. Having said that it will still be safe for gardening or fire protection.
The Cunnamulla climate
Situated 192m above sea level, Cunnamulla is home to a local steppe, or semi arid climate, which means long hot summers, and low rainfall.
Cunnamulla typically gets under 400mm of rainfall annually, relying on the Warrego River for much of its access to water.
Cunnamulla was founded on a watering hole where two stock routes intersected, and remains home to graziers and stock runners to this day. The main agricultural industries in the area are wool shearing, and pig and kangaroo hunting.

Over 100 years of experience
Over a century 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 Cunnamulla’s water storage requirements.

The first Squatter Tanks provided Australians with effecting and economical ways of capturing and storing large quantities of water– some of these tanks still stand 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 company, still operation over a hundred years later.

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

Disaster 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, the site developer reached out to Southern Cross to engineer and build two new tanks for the site, and the quality of these tanks have become a benchmark for many commercial projects from that point to comply with.

Cunnamulla Local Knowledge

Cunnamulla is one of the most kangaroo dense towns in Australia, with approximately 950 kangaroos per person in the region.
In tribute to the Slim Dusty song, Cunnamulla Fella, a large statue of the titular Fella was constructed in the town centre.
