Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Despite being a stunning and green part of the country, many parts of Tasmania are afflicted by green drought, which means in the hot, dry summer months, vegetation is dry and prone to wildfires.

An important way to prepare for the drier summer months is to make sure that you not only have a bushfire action plan, but also that you have sufficient water storage to help you and emergency services protect against the threat of wild fires.

So as to ensure your water tank can be used for the purposes of both household or property water storage, and fire protection, Pioneer Water Tanks offers the option of a fire reserve.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions

When the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC along with the CSIRO carried out bushfire simulations on a selection of water tanks, a steel Pioneer Water Tank stood up best.

All other tanks tested either melted or split, causing them to lose precious water, however the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water after being subjected to the full 30 minute fire front, which could prove critical to fire fighting efforts.

After a fire front has gone by, the water in your tank can still be used for non-consumptive purposes, such as watering your gardens, however, it is highly recommended to get your water tested as soon as possible to ensure your water is safe before using it for food preparation or drinking.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Bicheno climate

Bicheno has a temperate oceanic climate with mild summers and winters. In the average year, Swansea receives 679.6mm of rainfall, similar to much of the east coast.


The hinterland was established for farming in the mid-1840s, which continues today. The discovery of gold in Victoria saw most of the residents depart in 1855 and for nearly a century, Bicheno became a sleepy little fishing village.


Fishing has continued to be the lifeblood of the town with substantial quantities of crayfish, abalone, scallops and trevally.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

In areas across rural Australia, rainfall is often a welcome sight, and Tasmania is certainly no different.

However; storms causing heavy rainfall in a short time period can result in storm water runoff, especially in areas with roads and footpaths preventing the water from soaking into the ground.

If a 24 hour time period saw a 100mm deposit of rainfall on Bicheno, it would only require 100 homes with fitted water tanks and appropriate guttering to keep 2 million litres of water from entering the environment.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh® antimicrobial water tank liner

Proven to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in your water tank, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner available on the market, and a Pioneer Water tanks exclusive.

The Aqualiner Fresh ® utilises Sanitized ® technology, with the antibacterial properties of silver, interwoven into the water tank liner.

The most technologically advanced, cleanest and toughest liner available on the market, this is an industry leading product, made up of five distinct layers to protect and store your water.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

The Pioneer V-Lock ® tank wall profile has been engineered for durability, and created with the sole purpose of water storage in mind.

The V-Lock wall profile is designed to put the steel where it is needed most, for the optimal strength and support, in addition to protecting the tank liner, not just from external debris, but also against stretching or warping from the tank filling and emptying.

It's an arrangement so good, it won an Australian Design Award for the superior strength and internal support, together with its aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer Direct Network is comprised of over fifty water tank dealers across the country, meaning we can provide truly local service to all Australians.

Pioneer Water Tanks is proud to work with Statewide Tanks in Tasmania, a qualified tank installer who are able to assist with all your water storage demands.

We ensure that our dealers are of the best quality, as we understand that a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Bicheno Local Knowledge

Bicheno fun fact

Prior to European settlement the area around Bicheno was inhabited by members of the Paredareme Aboriginal language group. 

In 2003 a memorial to the Australian Merchant Navy was unveiled in the town.

Things to do in Bicheno

East Coast Natureworld is located on 150 acres of parklands and lagoons 7 km north of Bicheno on the Tasman Highway. It has been operating for over 30 years and offers an opportunity to see Forester kangaroos, wombats, Bennett's wallabies, Tasmanian devils, Eastern Quolls and Spotted-tail Quolls, koalas, Tasmanian bettong and Pademelons.

If you have been to the Penguin experience at Phillip Island and you felt it was a little overcrowded then the Bicheno Penguin Tours is probably more to your liking. It is a nightly guided tour of the return of the little (one time known as "fairy") penguins after their hard day catching food out to sea.
