Nambour Water Tanks

For water tanks Nambour can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply reliable water storage solutions for over a century.
People from Nambour can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
Many Queensland residents still look to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs, because they are mindful of their water storage requirements, and reliability.
Situated  in the sub-tropical hinterland of the Sunshine Coast at the foot of the Blackall Range, Nambour is the administrative centre of the Sunshine Coast region.

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.
Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help in reducing the amount of water building up from stormwater run-off, and decrease the risk of flash flooding.
Flash flooding as recent as February 2020 saw roads looking more like rivers, and cars submerged throughout Nambour.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Unfortunately, thanks to much of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Nambour is no different. Despite most of the region’s rains coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and warm 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 safeguard your property in the event of bushfire.
If a bushfire has passed through your property, it is highly recommended that you get your water quality examined for safety if you wish to carry on using it for household water. However it will still be safe for gardening or fire security.
The Nambour climate
Nambour, typical of most towns on the Sunshine Coast, and throughout South East Queensland, sits in a humid subtropical climate region. This results in wet mild winters, and wetter hot summers.
The Nambour region averages over 1600mm of rainfall each year, with no month averaging less than 50mm of rainfall, and three months averaging over 200mm.
Due to the tropical nature of the area, sugarcane and pineapple were common plantations in the area for a long time, and Nambour is home to The Big Pineapple, one of Australia’s many Big Things.

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 expertise in dealing with Australian and Nambour 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 haven for over half a century of continued innovation.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it provided people with a reliable and economical way of storing substantial amounds of water, and several of these tanks still stand 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 foreseen the brand going on the become an iconic Australian business, still operation over a hundred years later.

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

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

After this disaster, the sites developer turned to Southern Cross to design and manufacture two new water storage tanks for the site, and the requirements and quality these tanks had to conform to set the requirement for many subsequent commercial projects.
