At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing water tanks Hervey Bay residents can rely on for over a hundred years.
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.
Regrettably, due to much of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Hervey Bay is no different. Despite much of the region’s rains coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and warm days can quickly result in brushfires.
For over fifty years, 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 integrity 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.
When the Griffiths family formed the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they almost certainly didn’t know that it would continue on to become such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a hundred years in the future.
In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our competitors suffered a structural failure, leading the tank to burst, flooding somewhere around 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing destruction, and even washing away a family vehicle.
Hervey Bay is considered to be the Whale Watching Capital of Australia, and thanks to conservation efforts, whale numbers in the area have grown from approximately 2000 in 1992 to around 33,000 today!
