Dalby Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been supplying water tanks Dalby residents can put faith in.

Citizens of Dalby know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water harvesting and water storage solutions.

Inhabitants of Queensland 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.

Situated in the Western Darling Downs region, Dalby is the centre of Australia’s richest cotton and grain growing area.

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 Tank Colours

All Southern Cross Tanks can come in either standard ZINCALUME ® Galvanised Steel, or any of the following colours, which would be factory applied to the external wall sheets prior to shipping.

Water Storage Challenges

Rain is a refreshing sight for many people across Queensland, but due to modernised conveniences such as roads and paving, too much rain can trigger flash flooding, endangering homes and the ecosystem.

Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help reduce the amount of water accumulating from stormwater run-off, and minimise the possibility of flash flooding.
Dalby often experiences flooding, and in 2013 floodwaters peaked at 3.21 meters, causing extensive damage to homes and infrastructure in the town.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Unfortunately, due to most of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a steady risk in the long, hot summers, and Dalby is no different. Despite much of the region’s rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and hot days can quickly result in brushfires.

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 protect your property in the event of bushfire.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross highly recommends that you have your water tank tested for water safety if you’re intending to continue using it for drinkable water. It will continue to be safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Dalby climate
Dalby has a humid subtropical climate, but as it lies to the west of the Darling Range, and due to this experiences hotter drier summers, and cooler winters than many other towns in the region.

Dalby has an annual rainfall of just under 700mm, most of which comes from thunderstorms in the summer months, however rainfall is reasonably consistent year round.

The favourable weather, paired with Dalby’s location near the Condamine river means it is home to diverse and rich crops including wheat and cotton. The area is also used by graziers for pigs, cattle and sheep.

We manufacture, engineer and design all of our water tanks in house, and we can engineer them for specific applications, including some seismic conditions, and high-wind and cyclonic locations.
Our steel water tanks are suitable for potable water storage, as well as for stock feeding and irrigation.
Over 100 years of experience
The inaugural 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 extraordinary storage needs of Dalby and Australia like we do.
Southern Cross has been home to more than 5 decades of innovation when it comes to Bolted Steel Round Water Tanks, with our first model being built in the late 60’s.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it equipped individuals with a reliable and economical way of storing large amounts of water, and several of these tanks still remain to this day.
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 chance the Griffiths family expected the brand to grow to emerge as an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

As an Australian owned brand who still operate out of Loganholme to this day, Southern Cross is proud to help all manner of Australians with their water storage needs, from farms and irrigators to commercial sites and mine projects.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our competitors experienced a structural failure, leading the tank to burst, flooding roughly 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing damage, and even washing away a family car.

In the wake of the disaster, the developer of the University Hospital site enlisted Southern Cross to engineer and manufacture two new water storage tanks for the site, and the high standard engineering for those tanks has since become a measure for future commercial projects to comply to.

Dalby Tidbits

In the 1840’s Dalby was originally known locally as The Crossing, and existed as a small town on Myall Creek – an offshoot of the Condamine River.
The name Dalby was derived from the Isle of Man, as there were originally many migrants to the area from there.
