Emu Park Water Tanks

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been providing water tanks Emu Park residents can put faith in.
Emu Park locals know that they have the backing and support of one of the most iconic names in Australian water storage and water solutions.
Due to many people in Queensland being mindful of their water harvesting and water storage needs, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their needs.
With stunning beaches, beautiful weather, and an unrivalled view of the Keppel Bay and Great Keppel Island, Emu Park has long been a popular tourist destination.

Water Storage Challenges

While most people delight in rainfall, as a result of modern infrastructure like roads and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which can be harmful to homes and the local ecosystem.
Attaching a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help in reducing the amount of water building up from stormwater run-off, and reduce the likelihood of flash flooding.
Like much of Central and Northern Queensland, Emu Park suffers cyclones in the wet season, and when cyclone Marcia passed through in 2015, there was widespread damage to the region.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Unfortunately, due to most of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Emu Park is no different. Despite much of the region’s rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and hot days can quickly cause 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 safeguard your property in the event of bushfire.
In the aftermath of a bushfire it is highly recommended to get your water checked for safety if you’re going to be using it for potable or drinking water. Having said that it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Emu Park climate
Emu Park is home to a humid subtropical climate, with dry mild winters, and hot wet summers, but without the humidity of cities and towns in the far north.
Emu Park receives on average just over 1300mm of rainfall annually, mostly thanks to a particularly prosperous wet season in the summer months.
Despite the rainfall, Emu Park has always existed as a town based on tourism and fishing, rather than any primary forms of agriculture.

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 Emu Park water storage requirements.
In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have embraced over half a century of innovation and development since then.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it provided individuals with a reliable and economical way of storing large amounts of water, and some of these tanks still remain to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the Southern Cross brand was born of the Toowoomba Foundry, there was no way the Griffiths family could have anticipated the brand going on the become an iconic Australian company, still operation over a hundred years later.

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, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered a structiral failure, causing the tank to flood the nearby Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, washing away a family vehicle and causing damage to the surroundings.
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 benchmark for future commercial projects to comply to.
