Innes Park Water Tanks

Located on the fringes of Bundaberg, some 2 hours drive north of Gympie, Innes Park is a coastal town situated between two picturesque but rocky beaches.
For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been providing water tanks Innes Park residents can put faith in.
People from Innes Park 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.

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

While many individuals delight in rainfall, thanks to modern infrastructure like roads and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local environment.
Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help in reducing the amount of water building up from stormwater run-off, and help reduce the risk of flash flooding.
Heavy rainfall in the Innis Park can often lead to flash flooding, and as recently as 2017, over 300mm of rain in a 24 hour period left many homes in nearby areas without power, as floods spread through the area.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Due to Australia’s climate of long hot summers, bushfires are a continuous danger, and Innes Park is no different. Despite much of the rainfall coming in the summer months, this can lead to longer grasses which freely catch alight.
Nevertheless, Southern Cross are the fire tank professionals, and can thoroughly and proficiently fit your property or residence with a fire tank to help protect you from wildfires.
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 household water. It will continue to be safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Innes Park climate
InnesPark is home to a humid subtropical climate, with mild winters and hot, wet summers. The Bundaberg region has the most equable climate in Australia, meaning it has the most consistent year round temperatures in the country.
Prone to heavy rainfall, most of Innes Park’s rainfall comes in its wet season, or the summer months, with over 500mm typically falling between December and February.
Innes Park was originally settled as part of a pastoral station, due to favourable ecological conditions, but today serves as a satellite town for Bundaberg, and retirement and holiday destination.

Over 100 years of experience

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 experience in dealing with towns like Innes Park’s water storage needs.

Southern Cross has been home to over 50 years of innovation when it comes to Bolted Steel Round Water Tanks, with our first model being built in the late 60’s.
The first Squatter Tanks provided 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 very first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over an a century ago, there was no way the Griffiths family anticipated the brand to grow to emerge as an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

Not only does Southern Cross still operate out of Loganholme, we are an Australian owned company, servicing Australians from all walks of life, including irrigators, families, schools and many more.
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 car and causing damage to the surroundings.

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 measure for future commercial projects to comply to.

Innes Park Local Knowledge
