Warwick Water Tanks

For over a hundred years, Southern Cross have been designing and building steel water tanks Warwick residents can trust.

People from Warwick can sleep soundly, knowing they have the support of one of Australia’s most iconic water storage and harvesting companies.
Queensland locals are mindful of their water storage requirements, and because of this, many have, and still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs.
Warwick is set on the Condamine river, allowing for strong agricultural conditions, and fostering a population of just over fifteen thousand residents.

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.

Challenges of Water Storage in Warwick

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 ecosystem.

Installing a roof gutter system and a rainwater tank can help reduce the amount of water accumulating from stormwater run-off, and lower the possibility of flash flooding.
The Condamine River bordering Warwick often floods, leading to difficult conditions in the nearby area, and occasionally causing parts of Warwick to flood, the worst of which came in 2011 with much of the town ending up underwater.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Unfortunately the long hot summers in Warwick leave it, similar to much of Australia, prone to extensive bushfires. Despite the fact that much of Warwick’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often results in long grasses which ignite easily.

However, Southern Cross are the fire tank professionals, and can thoroughly and efficiently fit your property or residence with a fire tank to help protect you from wildfires.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross highly recommends that you have your water tank tested for water safety if you’re intending to continue using it for drinkable water. It will continue to be safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Warwick climate
Warwick has a humid subtropical climate, leading to occasional scorching hot summers, and mild to cool winters. It’s elevation and proximity inland gives it cooler winters than much of Queensland’s south east.
Like much of Queensland, much of Warwick’s rainfall comes in summer, with around 670mm of rainfall annually.
Despite the low rainfall, the position of Warwick on the banks of the Condamine river means it is an ideal place to plant crops of fruit and vegetables, with much of the town’s economy being based in agriculture.

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

Our first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank was built in the late 60’s, and since then Southern Cross has been home to over 5 decades of continued innovation.
When the original Squatter Tanks – some of which still stand today – were implemented in Australia, it gave people a reasonably priced and functional way of capturing storing large volumes of water.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy
When the first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over a hundred years ago, there was no chance the Griffiths family anticipated the brand to grow to become an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

Southern Cross is proud to remain Australian owned and operated, with our head office still located in Loganholme, and supporting all type of Australians, from urban commercial sites, to schools and universities, to farmers, rural families and irrigators.
Reliable in a pinch
In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our competitors suffered a structural failure, triggering 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.

After this disaster, the sites developer turned to Southern Cross to design and build two new water storage tanks for the site, and the requirements and quality these tanks had to conform to set the requirement for many future commercial projects.

Warwick Fun Facts

Not only was Queensland’s first ever female premier, Anna Bligh, born in Warwick, two other former premiers; Arthur Morgan and Thomas Joseph Byrnes – the 16th and 12th premiers respectively – were also Members of the Legislative Assembly for Warwick.

That means that Warwick has a connection to almost 8% of Queensland’s Premiers, despite boasting less than 1% of its population.
