For over a century , Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Goondiwindi residents can trust.
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 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.
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 install a water tank and link it up to a guttering system, you can help lessen the build up of water from rainwater run off, and decrease the risk of flash flooding.
Australia is renowned for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us prone to frequent bushfires and Goondiwindi is no different. Although a lot of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily ignite on the hotter days.
Like much of the surrounding area, Goondiwindi has a humid subtropical climate, meaning that it has warm, humid summers, and cool to mild winters.
For over half a century, Southern Cross has been supplying high quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australians, and every one of our tanks have a 30+ year design life.
We at Southern Cross pride ourselves in the stability and design of our fire storage tanks. We’re experts in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of water storage systems for the worldwide fire protection industry.
Over 100 years 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 unique perspective and expertise in handling Australian and Goondiwindi water storage requirements.
When the Griffiths family formed 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.
When a water tank built by one of our competitors at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered structural failure in 2015, the tank ruptured, inundating Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, resulting in damaging flooding, and even sweeping away a family car.
Former North Queensland Cowboys Premiership winning player Ethan Lowe was born and raised in Goondiwindi.
