Maryborough Water Tanks

At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing water tanks Maryborough residents can rely on for over a century.
People from Maryborough can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.

Inhabitants of Queensland are mindful of their water storage demands, and because of this, many have, and still look to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs.

Twin Cities with Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast, Maryborough is built on its sugarcane industry and tourism, with its rich soil and coastal location.

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 rain is appreciated in many areas across Queensland, excessive rain in a short period of time can build up on roads and paving, leading to flash flooding, which can damage homes, assets, and the local 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 risk of flash flooding.
Due to the heavy rainfall in the area, much like many of its neighbours, Maryborough is often affected by flash flooding from storm water run off.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Unfortunately the long hot summers in Maryborough leave it, like much of Australia, prone to widespread bushfires. Even with the fact that much of Maryborough’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often leads to long grasses which ignite easily.

Southern Cross Water are professionals when it relates to fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help safeguard your property in the event of bushfire.
If your property is affected by a bushfire, we recommend that you get your water checked for safety prior to continuing to use it for potable or drinking purposes. The tank will still be appropriate for watering gardens or fire protection.
The Maryborough climate
Maryborough is in a humid subtropical climate region, with warm, humid and wet summers accompanying mild winters. Unlike its neighbours to the North, Maryborough often reaches temperatures exceeding 35 degrees in summer.
Like many cities and towns in Queensland, most of Maryborough’s rainfall comes in the summer months, with the wet season from December to March accounting for roughly half of the annual precipitation.
The banks of the river and warm climate makes Maryborough ideal for growing sugarcane.

Over 100 years of experience
Over a century ago, the first Southern Cross water tank was manufactured by the Griffiths family, after they had experienced success with their Southern Cross windmills in 1903. This gives Southern Cross one-of-a-kind perspective and experience in dealing with Australian and Maryborough’s water storage requirements.
With the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank being produced by Southern Cross in the late 60’s, we’ve been a sanctum for over 50 years of continued innovation.
When the first Squatter Tanks – some of which still stand today – were implemented in Australia, it allowed people an affordable and practical way of capturing storing large quantities of water.
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 anticipated the brand going on the become an iconic Australian business, still operation over a hundred years later.

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

In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our competitors sustained a structural failure, triggering the tank to burst, flooding somewhere around 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing destruction, and even washing away a family vehicle.

After this catastrophe, the sites developer turned to Southern Cross to design and build two new water storage tanks for the site, and the requirements and quality these tanks had to comply to set the standard for many future commercial projects.

Maryborough Local Knowledge

The Maryborough region is important for its support of rare and endangered animals such as the Mary River Turtle.

The city derives its name from the Mary River on which it sits, which was in turn named after the wife of the Governor of New South Wales at the time.
