For water tanks Queensland can rely on, Southern Cross have been there to supply quality water storage solutions for over a century.
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.
Rain is a welcome sight for most people across Queensland, much like the rest of Australia, but due to modern conveniences such as roads and paving, large amounts of rain can bring about flash flooding, endangering homes and the ecosystem.
Australia is famous for its long hot summers, but sadly this leaves us susceptible to regular bushfires and a state as large Queensland is sure to be no exception. Although much of the state’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily ignite on the warmer days.
These greener areas are also offset by much more arid climates in inland areas like the Queensland part of the Simpson Desert.
Southern Cross have been supplying the highest quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australians for over 50 years, and all of our tanks have a 30 + year design life.
At Southern Cross we pride ourselves in the design and integrity of our fire tanks. We are experts in the design, manufacture, setup and maintenance of water storage systems for the worldwide fire protection industry.
The original Southern Cross windmill was manufactured in the Toowoomba Foundry in 1903, and not far behind was the first Southern Cross water tank, meaning nobody knows the unique storage needs of Queensland like our people do.
When the Griffiths family created the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they almost certainly didn’t know that it would continue on to become such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a century in the future.
Misfortune struck the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, when a water tank built by one of our rivals suffered a devastating structural failure, bursting the tanks and washing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family vehicle.
