Murgon Water Tanks

Murgon is a rural town and locality in the South Burnett Region, Queensland, Australia. It is situated on the Bunya Highway 67 km from Kingaroy.
For over a century , Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Murgon residents can trust.
People of Murgon can rest assured that they have the backing of one of Australia’s most iconic companies when it comes to water storage and water solutions.
People in Queensland are mindful of their water storage demands, and because of this, many have, and still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs.

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

Despite many people still delighting in rainfall, due to modern infrastructure, like bitumen and concrete, large amounts of rain can build up, causing flash flooding, which can cause damage to homes and the environment.
Setting up a rainwater tank, with a connected roof gutter system can help reduce the amount of rainwater run-off and help reduce the possibility of flash flooding.
Being near a dam and river systems, Murgon is often subject to water run-off and flooding throughout the area in times of heavy rainfall.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is well-known for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us susceptible to regular bushfires and Murgon is no different. While much of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this results in lush grasses that can easily ignite on the hotter days.
Thankfully, Southern Cross are the fire tank experts, and can fit your home or  commercial space with a fire tank to protect your property at the time of wildfires.
After a bushfire it is highly recommended to get your water assessed for safety if you’re going to be using it for potable or drinking water. However it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Murgon climate
Murgon is located in a coastal humid subtropical climate region, resulting in warm wet summers, and milder drier winters.
Located in the Burnett River Catchment region, Murgon receives just over 600mm of rainfall annually, and receives much of its water from the Bjelke-Petersen Dam.
These conditions have lent themselves to great conditions for cattle for both beef and dairy, as well as strong peanut and winemaking industries.

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 handling Australian and Murgon water storage requirements.

In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have embraced over half a century of innovation and improvement since then.
Squatter Tanks were an innovative way for Australians to store vast amounts of water in an effecting and cost-efficient manner – some of these tanks are still standing 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 little chance the Griffiths family could have anticipated the brand going on the become an iconic Australian company, still operation over a hundred years later.

Not only does Southern Cross still operate out of Murarrie, we are an Australian owned company, servicing Australians from all walks of life, including irrigators, families, schools and many more.
Reliable in a pinch

When a water tank constructed by one of our competitors at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered structural failure in 2015, the tank burst, inundating Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, causing damaging flooding, and even sweeping away a family vehicle.

In the wake of the misfortune, the developer of the University Hospital site enlisted Southern Cross to engineer and manufacture two new water storage tanks for the site, and the high standard engineering for those tanks has since become a standard for future commercial projects to comply to.
