Located less than 50km South of Brisbane Yarrabilba is touted as part of a new Urban area expected to house 50000 people when finished expanding.

Water Storage Challenges

While many individuals delight in rainfall, thanks to modern infrastructure like roadways and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which can be harmful to homes and the local environment.

By attaching a roof gutter system, and connecting it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and moderate the risk of flash flooding.

With much low lying water in the Yarrabilba area, the risk of storm run off from a cyclone or summer storm is high, and continues to increase as the area sees more residential development.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer

Unfortunately the long hot summers in Yarrabilba leave it, like much of Australia, vulnerable to widespread bushfires. Even with the fact that much of Yarrabilba’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often results in long grasses which burn easily.

Southern Cross Water are specialists when it relates to fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help safeguard your property in the event of bushfire.
After a bushfire travels through your property, Southern Cross encourages that you have your water tank tested for water safety if you’re planning to continue using it for potable water. It will continue to be safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Yarrabilba climate

Yarrabilba, like much of the Brisbane and Logan City area, is home to a humid subtropical climate, making it an attractive place to live for many families.

With over 1000mm of rain annually, and more than 250 rain free days, Yarrabilba is an ideal place for most activities.
Despite the ideal conditions, Yarrabilba was never home to much agricultural industry, and instead was located on the Beaudesert Train line, which passed through to Canungra.

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 unique perspective and expertise in dealing with Australian and Yarrabilba water storage requirements.

With the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank being produced by Southern Cross in the late 60’s, we’ve been a haven for over 50 years of continued innovation.
Squatter Tanks were an innovative 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

There was no way anyone could have predicted the birth of an Australian icon when the Griffiths family observed the very first windmill roll off the Toowoomba Foundry line over a hundred years ago.

Not only does Southern Cross still operate out of Loganholme, we are an Australian owned company, helping Australians from all walks of life, including irrigators, families, schools and many more.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our rivals suffered a structural failure, triggering the tank to rupture, flooding somewhere around 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing wreckage, and even washing away a family vehicle.

After this catastrophe, the sites developer looked to Southern Cross to design and construct two new water storage tanks for the site, and the requirements and quality these tanks had to conform to set the requirement for many subsequent commercial projects.
