Nanango Water Tanks

Nanango is a town and locality in the South Burnett Region just 27 km from the nearby town of Kingaroy.

For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been supplying water tanks Nanango residents can put faith in.

Nanango locals 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 due to this, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to assist them in meeting their water harvesting needs.

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

While most people delight in rainfall, as a result of modern infrastructure like roads and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local environment.
By installing a roof gutter system, and linking it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and minimise the risk of flash flooding.
Flash storms across South Queensland caused flooding throughout the town of Nanango in 2020.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is well-known for its long hot summers, but sadly this leaves us vulnerable to frequent bushfires and Nanango is no exception. Although a lot of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this leads to lush grasses that can easily ignite on the hotter days.
Fortunately, Southern Cross are the fire tank experts, and can effectively and proficiently fit your property or home with a fire tank to help protect you from wildfires.
After a bushfire it is encouraged to get your water examined 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 Nanango climate
The area has a similar climate to the nearby town of Kingaroy, however it is described as cooler in winter and more humid.
Nanango receives almost 800mm of rainfall annually, and being near river systems and dams helps keep it green and fresh.
Thanks to these conditions agriculture, beef and pork production, dairying and milk processing, timber growing and milling and small crops are prevalent in the area.

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 unique perspective and experience in handling Australian and Nanango water storage requirements.

Southern Cross has been home to more than 5 decades of innovation when it comes to Bolted Steel Round Water Tanks, with our first model being built in the late 60s.
Squatter Tanks were a cutting edge way for Australians to store vast amounts of water in an effecting and affordable manner – some of these tanks are still standing 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 develop into an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

Not only does Southern Cross still operate out of Murarrie, we are an Australian owned company, helping Australians from all walks of life, including 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 competitors sustained a structural failure, causing the tank to burst, flooding roughly 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing wreckage, and even washing away a family vehicle.

Following this tragedy, the site’s developer turned to Southern Cross to construct a pair of new tanks on the site, and the quality of these Southern Cross tanks served to set the benchmark for many commercial projects from that point forward.
