Ingham Water Tanks

For over a century , Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Ingham residents can trust.
Ingham residents know that they have the backing and support of one of the most iconic names in Australian water storage and water solutions.
Many Queensland residents still look to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs, because they are mindful of their water storage requirements, and reliability.
Ingham sits on the Herbert River floodplain, some 68km north of Townsville. Ingham is the administrative centre of the Shire of Hinchinbrook.

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

While many individuals delight in rainfall, thanks to modern infrastructure like roadways and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which can be harmful to homes and the local ecosystem.
Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help reduce the amount of water building up from stormwater run-off, and decrease the possibility of flash flooding.
Built on a floodplain, Ingham is no stranger to running water, and in 2011 a cyclone shelter was built, due to the frequency and ferocity of cyclones in the region.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Regrettably, due to most of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a steady risk in the long, hot summers, and Ingham is no exception. Despite most of the region’s rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and warm days can easily result in brushfires.

Thankfully, at Southern Cross we consider ourselves experts when it comes to fire tanks, and we can fit your property or home with a sufficient fire tank to help safeguard you from bushfires.
After a bushfire it is highly recommended to get your water examined for safety if you’re going to be utilising it for potable or drinking water. Having said that it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Ingham climate
Part of the Queensland Wet Tropics bioregion, Ingham has a very humid and hot wet season and a less humid and warm dry season. Ingham hosts a tropical monsoon climate.
The Ingham region receives, on average, over 2100mm of rainfall annually, with more than 30mm expected in any given month. More than 75% of this rainfall comes between the months of December and April.
Ingham is host to two sugar mills, and is a hub for many sugarcane plantations. The favourable climate in the region has also lent itself to strong cattle, watermelon, rice, horticulture, fishing and timber industry.

Over 100 years of experience

The inaugural 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 Ingham and Australia like we do.

Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and ever since Southern Cross has been home to over 5 decades of continued innovation.
The first Squatter Tanks provided Australians with effecting and affordable ways of capturing and storing large amounts of water– a number of these tanks still endure 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 surely 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 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 business on industrial sites– even schools and universities.
Reliable in a pinch
Disaster struck the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, when a water tank built by one of our competitors suffered a catastrophic structural failure, rupturing the tanks and washing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family vehicle.
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 benchmark for many commercial projects from that point to comply with.
