Home Hill Water Tanks

For water tanks Home Hill can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply reliable water storage solutions for over a century.
People from Home Hill can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
People in Queensland are mindful of their water storage requirements, and because of this, many have, and still look to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs.
Nestled neatly between the Burdekin River and the Bruce Highway, Home Hill, despite its name, is a relatively flat locality, that first had blocks for sale over 100 years ago in 1912.

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 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.
Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help in reducing the amount of water accumulating from stormwater run-off, and help reduce the likelihood of flash flooding.
In 1959, when a cyclone struck Home Hill, over 100 people were left homeless, as every structure in the town felt its wrath. The town is also no stranger to sporadic flooding, being built on the banks of the Burdekin River.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Due to Australia’s climate of long hot summers, bushfires are a continuous possibility, and Home Hill is no exception. Despite having much of the rainfall coming in the summer months, this can result in longer grasses which freely catch alight.

Southern Cross Water are experts when it comes to fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help protect your property in the event of bushfire.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross recommends that you have your water tank checked for water safety if you’re going to continue using it for potable water. It will remain safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Home Hill climate
Home Hill is classified as a tropical savanna climate, with long hot and wet summers, with drier and milder winters, without ever getting too cold, with temperatures nearing freezing very uncommon.
Home Hill typically receives over 1000mm of rainfall which keeps dams, tanks and the nearby Burdekin River stocked with water the year round.
Its geographic location and plentiful rainfall makes Home Hill an ideal candidate for sugarcane, mangoes and other tropical crops which have been grown there for decades.

We can also design and manufacture tanks that comply with international codes if needed.
Over 100 years of experience
The first Southern Cross windmill was manufactured in the Toowoomba Foundry in 1903, and not far behind was the first Southern Cross water tank, meaning nobody knows the extraordinary storage needs of Home Hill and Australia like we do.
In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have welcomed over half a century of innovation and development since then.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it equipped individuals with an effective and affordable way of storing large amounds of water, and some of these tanks still stand to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the very first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over an a century ago, there was no chance the Griffiths family expected the brand to grow to become an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

Southern Cross is an Australian owned brand, and we still operate out of Loganholme to this day, servicing Australians from all walks of life, from rural families, to irrigators, to companies on industrial sites– even schools and universities.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital sustained a structural 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.

After this, the site developer reached out to Southern Cross to engineer and build two new tanks for the site, and the quality of these tanks have become a yardstick for many commercial projects from that point to comply with.

Home Hill Local Knowledge

The Home Hill Harvest Festival is an annual week-long program of events held in November, culminating in a street parade and Mardi Gras.
Home Hill was established originally as there was no bridge across to Ayr, and in order to have sustainable access to the land, a new town was required.
