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.
Unfortunately, as a result of much of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a steady risk in the long, hot summers, and Kingaroy is no different. Despite most of the region’s rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and hot days can easily result in brushfires.
For more than half a century, we at Southern Cross have supplied premium quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australian households and companies, and all Southern Cross tanks have a 30+ year design life.
At Southern Cross we take pride in the design and soundness of our fire tanks. We are experts in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of water storage systems for the international fire protection industry.
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 Kingaroy and Australia like our people do.
There was no way anyone could have forecast the birth of an Australian icon when the Griffiths family watched the very first windmill roll off the Toowoomba Foundry line over a hundred years ago.
The origin of the name Kingaroy is usually claimed to be derived from the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal word for ‘Red Ant’. The local Kingaroy Rugby League football team is known as “the Red Ants” and a Red Ant features on the old Kingaroy Shire coat of arms.
Although the weather is great all year round, Autumn is widely considered the best season to Kingaroy. That’s when the temperature starts to dip and the leaves change colour, making the countryside even more picturesque and cosy nights by the fire all the more appealing.
Make sure to enjoy the local wineries and food, and also the waterfalls nearby if you stop off in Kingaroy.
