Jimboomba Water Tanks

For water tanks Jimboomba can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply reliable water storage solutions for over a century.

Jimboomba locals know that they have the backing and support of one of the most iconic names in Australian water storage and water solutions.

The populace of Queensland are mindful of their water storage requirements, and due to this, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to support them in meeting their water harvesting needs.

Originally spelled Gimboomba, the town of Jimboomba is located just 41km from the City of Brisbane, at the site of a sheep and livestock station that serviced the area in the late 1800’s.

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

Rain is a refreshing sight for many people across Queensland, but as a result of modernised conveniences like as roads and paving, significant rain can trigger flash flooding, endangering homes and the ecosystem.
By installing a roof gutter system, and connecting it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and decrease the possibility of flash flooding.
In 2013, flash floods ran through Jimboomba, closing many roads in the area, as buildup from storms combined with water from the Logan River.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Australia is renowned for its long hot summers, but sadly this leaves us prone to regular bushfires and Jimboomba is no different. While a lot of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily burn on the hotter days.

Thankfully, at Southern Cross we consider ourselves specialists when it concerns fire tanks, and we can fit your property or home with an adequate fire tank to help safeguard you from bushfires.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross encourages that you have your water tank assessed for water safety if you’re intending to continue using it for houesehold water. It will remain safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Jimboomba climate

Jimboomba, like much of the Brisbane and Logan City area, is home to a humid subtropical climate, making it an attractive place to live for many families.

Jimboomba receives plentiful and steady rainfall, with most of the precipitation falling in the summer months, from December to March making up considerably more than half of the annual rainfall.
The desirable weather, and the towns location relative to the Logan River once made it ideal for sheep and livestock, and still supports much cattle grazing and dairy farming, with a scattering of hobby farms in the area.

Over 100 years of experience

From the very first Southern Cross windmill wheeling off the Toowoomba Foundry line in 1903, and the original Southern Cross Water Tank over 100 years ago, nobody has experience like we do of dealing with Jimboomba and Australia’s unique water storage needs.

Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and since then Southern Cross has been home to more than half a century of ongoing innovation.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it provided people with an effective and cost-effective 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 Southern Cross brand was born of the Toowoomba Foundry, there was no way the Griffiths family could have foreseen the brand going on the become an iconic Australian company, still operation over a hundred years later.

Southern Cross is proud to remain Australian owned and operated, with our head office still located in Loganholme, and helping all type of Australians, from urban commercial sites, to schools and universities, to growers, rural families and irrigators.
Reliable in a pinch

Disaster struck the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, when a water tank built by one of our competitors suffured a catastrophic structural failure, bursting the tanks and washing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family car.

After this catastrophe, the sites developer turned to Southern Cross to design and construct two new water storage tanks for the site, and the requirements and quality these tanks had to conform to set the requirement for many subsequent commercial projects.

Jimboomba Local Knowledge

Gimboomba is a Gugingin word – the First Australian peoples of the area – meaning place of loud thunder and little rain.

The town of Jimoomba sprung up around the local cattle runs and sheep stations thanks to the Jimboomba Railway Station, on the now disused Beaudesert line.
