Western Queensland is the dry heart of the state – it has an extensive grazing industry coupled with large scale irrigation and a major mining and gas industry. This region is highly reliant on water from the Great Artesian Basin and rainwater harvesting systems. Water from these sources will always require water tanks as part of their water supply system.
The climate in Western Queensland is semi-arid to arid with very hot summers and mild winters. The rainfall in this region ranges from 170mm in the far western regions of the state up to 590mm in the eastern parts of Western QLD. The rain falls mainly in the summer months with periods of heavy rainfall, the winters are relatively dry. With this type of rainfall pattern rainwater harvesting and the use of rainwater tanks is an important source of clean water.
The major service towns in the region include Longreach, Winton, Blackall, Barcaldine. Bedourie, Birdsville, Boulia, Urandangi, Ilfracombe, Isisford, Yaraka, Jundah, Stonehenge, Windorah, Alpha, Aramac, Jericho, Tambo, Muttaburra, Charleville, Roma, Augathella, Windorah, Thargomindah, St George and Cunnamulla. These towns are serviced by local Bushmans stockists who provide service and support in the selection and installation of water tanks.
