Tin Can Bay Water Tanks

Tin Can Bay is a coastal town in the Gympie region that shares a coast with the Great Sandy Strait.
For over a hundred years, Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Tin Can Bay residents can trust.
Locals of Tin Can Bay know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water collection and water storage solutions.
Many Tin Can Bay 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.

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.

All Southern Cross Tanks can come in either standard ZINCALUME ® Galvanised Steel, or any of the following colours, which would be factory applied to the external wall sheets prior to shipping.

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.
While Tin Can Bay itself is often safe from flooding, the surrounding areas often experience damaging and costly storm water run off in the wet season, damaging homes and infrastructure.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Unfortunately the long hot summers in Tin Can Bay leave it, like much of Australia, vulnerable to wide-spread bushfires. Even with the fact that much of ‘s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often results in long grasses which ignite easily.
Southern Cross Water are specialists when it involves fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help protect your property in case of bushfire.
If your property is impacted by a bushfire, we recommend that you get your water examined for safety prior to continuing to use it for potable or drinking purposes. The tank will still be appropriate for watering gardens or fire protection.
The Tin Can Bay climate
Tin Can Bay is located in a coastal humid subtropical climate region, resulting in warm wet summers, and milder drier winters.
Located on a peninsula between Snapper Creek and the Great Sandy Strait Tin Can Bay receives over 1000mm of rainfall annually.
Despite these conditions seeming ideal for farming or sugarcane plantations, like many other nearby areas, Tin Can Bay remains an important fishing port, and also serves as a popular tourism destination.

Over 100 years of experience

The first 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 Tin Can Bay and Australia like our people do.

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
When the original Squatter Tanks – some of which still endure today – were implemented in Australia, it allowed people an inexpensive and practical way of capturing storing large volumes of water.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy

When the Griffiths family formed the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they surely didn’t know that it would go on to end up being such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a century in the future.

Southern Cross is an Australian owned brand, and we still operate out of Loganholme to this day, servicing Australians from all walks of life, from rural families, to irrigators, to business on commercial sites– even educational institutions.
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, flooding Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, resulting in damaging flooding, and even sweeping away a family vehicle.

Following this tragedy, the site’s developer turned to Southern Cross to build two new tanks on the site, and the quality of these Southern Cross tanks served to set the standard for many commercial projects from that point onward.

Tin Can Bay Local Knowledge

The town was originally called Wallu, but was changed to Tin Can Bay in 1937. The origins of the name “Tin Can,” are likely a Westernisation of indigenous word “tinken” or “tinchin”.
