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.
Unfortunately the long hot summers in Gympie leave it, similar to much of Australia, prone to widespread bushfires. Despite the fact that much of Gympie’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often results in long grasses which burn easily.
For over fifty years, Southern Cross has been providing high premium steel bolted storage tanks to Australians, and all of our tanks have a 30+ year design life.
At Southern Cross, we specialise not only in the design and manufacture of world wide water storage systems, but also the installation and service life. We take pride in the quality and design of our fire storage tanks.
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 taking care of towns like Gympie’s water storage needs.
When the Southern Cross brand was born of the Toowoomba Foundry, there was no little chance the Griffiths family could have foreseen the brand going on the become an iconic Australian business, still operation over a hundred years later.
The historic cafe and shopping strip on Mary Street is always worth a look, and if history and locomotives are your thing, you should take a ride on the Mary Valley Rattler, which offers a trip back in time, and beautiful scenic views.
