Goondiwindi Water Tanks

For over a century , Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Goondiwindi residents can trust.

People from Goondiwindi can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.

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.

Located just on the Queensland side of the QLD – NSW border, Goondiwindi sits on the MacIntire River, and has had a town centre, including a school, for over 150 years.

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

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.

Such are the flood conditions in Goondiwindi, that in 1956 the town were forced to build levee banks to protect the town, after three floods in six months. In both 1996 and 2011, the MacIntire River flooded, reaching 10.6m both times.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

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.

Southern Cross Water are specialists when it relates to fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help defend your property in case of bushfire.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross advises that you have your water tank tested for water safety if you’re intending to continue using it for drinkable water. It will remain safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Goondiwindi climate

Like much of the surrounding area, Goondiwindi has a humid subtropical climate, meaning that it has warm, humid summers, and cool to mild winters.

Due to its inland location, Goondiwindi does not receive a large amount of rainfall, coming in at around 525mm a year, with more than half of this falling between November and February.
Despite its long and punishing dry season, Goondiwindi is a hub of agriculture, with  a diverse range of crops and fibres including wool and beef, cotton, sorghum, corn, wheat, barley and chickpeas grown in the region.

Over 100 years of experience

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.

With the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank being produced by Southern Cross in the late 60’s, we’ve been a sanctum for over fifty years of continued innovation.
The first Squatter Tanks presented Australians with effecting and affordable ways of capturing and storing large quantities of water– a number of these tanks still stand today!
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

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.

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

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.

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.
