Dysart Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been supplying water tanks Dysart residents can put faith in.
People of Dysart know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water collection and water storage solutions.
The populace of Queensland understand their water storage requirements, and due to this, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
Dysart is a relatively young town, as far as rural Queensland goes, founded in 1973 to service the nearby Norwich Park coal mine. Today Dysart services multiple mines in the area, and has flourished into a strong community.

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

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.
Installing a rainwater tank, with a connected roof gutter system can help in reducing the amount of rainwater run-off and help reduce the risk of flash flooding.
In 2017, Dysart and several neighbouring towns were isolated as floodwaters from Cyclone Debbie cut off access-ways to the towns.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is well-known for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us prone to regular bushfires and Dysart is no exception. Although a lot of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this results in lush grasses that can easily burn on the hotter days.

The good news is, Southern Cross are the fire tank experts, and can fit your home or commercial space with a fire tank to protect your property at the time of wildfires.
After a bushfire travels through your property, Southern Cross recommends that you have your water tank evaluated for water safety if you’re going to continue using it for drinkable water. It will continue to be safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Dysart climate
Dysart is home to a semi-arid, or local steppe climate, with plentiful sunshine and sporadic rainfall. Sitting some 228m above sea level, it is too far inland for much of the wet season rainfall to reach.
Annually, Dysart clocks in at an average rainfall of 619mm, making reliable water storage more important than ever.
Despite being primarily a coal mining town, Dysart’s flat grasslands also serve as great fodder for grazing of sheep and cattle.

We can also design and manufacture tanks that comply with international process water, or fire codes if needed.
Over 100 years of experience
In 1903, the original Southern Cross windmill was manufactured by the Griffiths family at the Toowoomba Foundry, and soon after so was the first Southern Cross water tank, leaving us with unparalleled expertise in dealing with towns like Dysart’s water storage needs.
In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have welcomed over half a century of innovation and development since then.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it equipped people with a reliable and affordable way of storing substantial amounds of water, and several of these tanks still stand to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy
When the Griffiths family created the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they almost certainly didn’t know that it would go on to end up being such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a hundred years in the future.

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 companies on commercial sites– even educational institutions.
Reliable in a pinch
When a water tank constructed by one of our competitors at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered structural failure in 2015, the tank ruptured, flooding Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, resulting in damaging flooding, and even sweeping away a family car.

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.

Dysart Local Knowledge

One of the town’s main attractions is the restored Mt Orange Copper Smelter chimney, of which the original structure was erected in 1879 to treat ore from nearby mines. It closed in 1910, some 60 years before Dysart was founded.
