Mooloolah Valley Water Tanks

At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing water tanks Mooloolah Valley residents can rely on for over a century.
Locals of Mooloolah Valley know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water harvesting and water storage 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 assist them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
Just north of Landsborough, located in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Mooloolah Valley is named for the river that it neighbours, the Mooloolah River.

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

Rain is a welcome sight for many people across Queensland, but as a result of modernised conveniences like as roads and paving, excessive rain can bring about flash flooding, endangering homes and the ecosystem.
If you install a water tank and connect it up to a guttering system, you can help lessen the build up of water from rainwater run off, and lessen the possibility of flash flooding.
Lying on the riverbed, in a valley, typically presents challenges with water run off, let-alone in an area that gets as much rainfall as the hinterland region.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Regrettably, as a result of much of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a steady risk in the long, hot summers, and Mooloolah Valley is no different. Despite most of the region’s rains coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and scorching days can easily result in brushfires.
Southern Cross Water are specialists when it comes to fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help protect your property in case of bushfire.
After a bushfire it is highly recommended to get your water assessed for safety if you’re going to be utilising it for potable or drinking water. However it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Mooloolah Valley climate
The Mooloolah Valley, much like a lot of South East Queensland, lies in a humid subtropical climate region. This results in wet mild winters, and wetter hot summers.
Many of the neighbouring towns and shires of Mooloolah Valley record well over 1500mm of rainfall a year, some of the highest rainfall averages in the country.
The lush grasses and abundant timber made the area ideal for lumbering and grazing for early European settlers.

Over 100 years of experience

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

With the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank being produced by Southern Cross in the late 60’s, we’ve been a haven for over half a century of continued innovation.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it provided individuals with a reliable and economical way of storing substantial amounds of water, and some of these tanks still stand to this day.
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.

As an Australian owned brand who still operate out of Loganholme to this day, Southern Cross is proud to help all manner of Australians with their water storage needs, from farms and irrigators to commercial sites and mine projects.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered a structiral failure, causing the tank to flood the close-by Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, washing away a family vehicle and causing damage to the surroundings.

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.

Mooloolah Valley Local Knowledge

Mooloolah or Moolooloo, translates to dark coloured fish, in the native tongue of the First Nations People who inhabited the area, a reference to the fish and wildlife found in the Mooloolah River.

The Mooloolah population more than doubled between 2006 and 2011, as families moved to the booming Sunshine Coast area.
