Middlemount Water Tanks

At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing water tanks Middlemount residents can count on for over a century.
Middlemount inhabitants 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 understand their water storage requirements, and because of this, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to assist them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
Middlemount appeared almost out of nowhere in the mid 1980’s, due to the mining resources in the region.

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 welcome sight for many people across/ statename/, but due to modern conveniences such as roads and paving, excessive rain can lead to flash flooding, causing damage to homes and the ecosystem.
If you install a water tank and link it up to a guttering system, you can help lessen the build up of water from rainwater run off, and reduce the risk of flash flooding.
The Middlemount area receives a very small amount rain, increasing the importance of water storage to provide reliable access to clean fresh water.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Unfortunately, due to most of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Middlemount is no different. Despite most of the region’s rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and hot days can easily cause 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 protect you from bushfires.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross recommends that you have your water tank tested for water safety if you’re going to continue using it for potable water. It will remain safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Middlemount climate
Middlemount, like many of the coal mining towns nearby, has a mid-latitude steppe climate, with varied temperatures, and little rainfall throughout the year.

Because of this, Middlemount has mild dry winters, and mild to hot summers, with the temperature regularly in the high 30s.

Due to this poor climate, and Middlemount having been born a mining town, there is very little agriculture or farming in the area, with the town’s economy based around the nearby coal mines.

Over 100 years of experience
Over 100 years 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 unique perspective and expertise in dealing with Australian and Middlemount water storage requirements.
Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and since then Southern Cross has been home to over 50 years of continued innovation.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it armed people with an effective and affordable way of storing large quantities of water, and some of these tanks still stand to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over a hundred years ago, there was no way the Griffiths family expected the brand to grow to become an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

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 companies 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 suffured a catastrophic structural failure, bursting the tanks and rushing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family car.

After this, the site developer contacted 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.

Middlemount Fact

Despite its status as a born and bred mining town, Middlemount has grown its own town centre, with a post office, gym and shopping centre.
