Tully Water Tanks

At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing water tanks Tully residents can rely on for over a century.
Locals of Tully know that they have the support of one of Australia’s most recognisable names in water collection and water storage 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 help them in meeting their water harvesting needs.
One of the larger towns in the Cassowary coast region, Tully is named after the nearby Tully River, which itself was named after a Surveyor General of Queensland William Alcock Tully. One of the wettest towns in Australia, Tully competes with nearby Babinda annually for the golden gumboot.

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

Rain is a refreshing sight for many people across Queensland, but due to modern conveniences such as roads and paving, significant rain can bring about flash flooding, damaging homes and the ecosystem.
If you install a water tank and connect it up to a guttering system, you can help reduce the build up of water from rainwater run off, and lessen the possibility of flash flooding.
Such is the rainfall and risk of flood in Tully, a giant gumboot was erected in in 2003, as a monument to the town’s high rainfall, also serving as a museum, documenting past floods.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is renowned for its long hot summers, but unfortunately this leaves us susceptible to frequent bushfires and Tully is no exception. While much of the area’s rainfall does fall in the summer months, this produces lush grasses that can easily ignite on the warmer days.
Thankfully, at Southern Cross we consider ourselves experts when it comes to fire tanks, and we can fit your property or home with a sufficient fire tank to help safeguard you from bushfires.
After a bushfire it is encouraged to get your water checked for safety if you’re going to be using it for potable or drinking water. Having said that it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Tully climate
In a tropical rainforest climate, Tully experiences mild temperatures the year round, with the average max ranging from 31 degrees to 24 degrees, and the average min ranging from 15 to 23 degrees.
Experiencing a whopping 4100mm of rainfall a year on average, Tully is typically in the top two wettest towns in the country. No month has an average of less than 100mm of rainfall, with March averaging an alarming 752mm of rainfall – more than a whole year in Perth.
Sugar cane and bananas are the dominant crops in the area, thanks to the high rainfall and warm temperatures.

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 experience in handling Australian and Tully water storage requirements.

Southern Cross has been home to more than 50 years of innovation when it comes to Bolted Steel Round Water Tanks, with our first model being built in the late 60’s.
Squatter Tanks were a cutting edge way for Australians to store vast amounts of water in an effecting and cost-efficient manner – a number of these tanks are still standing 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 way the Griffiths family could have anticipated the brand going on the become an iconic Australian company, still operation over a hundred years later.

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

Disaster struck the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in 2015, when a water tank built by one of our rivals suffered a catastrophic structural failure, bursting the tanks and washing approximately 2.5 million litres of destructive water over Kawana way, even sweeping away a family car.

Following this tragedy, the site’s developer turned to Southern Cross to construct two 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 onward.
