Toogoom Water Tanks

Toogoom is a coastal town and rural locality in the Fraser Coast Region, Queensland, Australia, located in between Bundaberg and Gympie.
At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing water tanks Toogoom residents can rely on for over a century.
People of Toogoom can be comfortable knowing that they have the backing of one of Australia’s most iconic companies when it comes to water storage and water solutions.
The populace of Queensland are mindful of 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 lots of folks delight in rainfall, as a result of modern infrastructure like roadways and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local environment.
Attaching a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help in reducing the amount of water accumulating from stormwater run-off, and minimise the likelihood of flash flooding.
In years where there are long lasting storm conditions, such as 2013 and 2017, Toogoom is subject to widespread flooding and stormwater run off.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Sadly the long hot summers in Toogoom leave it, similar to much of Australia, prone to wide-spread bushfires. Even with the fact that much of Toogoom’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often results in long grasses which burn easily.
Thankfully, Southern Cross are the fire tank specialists, and can fit your residence or commercial space with a fire tank to offer protection to your property at the time of wildfires.
If a bushfire has passed through your property, it is advised that you get your water quality assessed for safety if you intend to continue using it for household water. However it will still be safe for gardening or fire security.
The Toogoom climate
Toogoom is home to a humid subtropical climate, with mild winters and hot, wet summers.
Boasting a strong wet season, over 500mm typically falls between December and February.
Toogoom is a tourism fuelled town, with its year round warm temperatures and attractive beaches making it a gem of the Fraser Coast.

Over 100 years of experience

From the very first Southern Cross windmill wheeling off the Toowoomba Foundry line in 1903, and the original Southern Cross Water Tank over 100 years ago, nobody has expertise like we do of dealing with Burnett Heads and Australia’s unique water storage needs.

Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and ever since Southern Cross has been home to over half a century of continued innovation.
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 continue on to end up being such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a hundred years in the future.

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

After this, the site developer reached out to Southern Cross to engineer and build two new tanks for the site, and the quality of these tanks have become a benchmark for many commercial projects from that point to comply with.
