Dongara Water Tanks

For over 30 years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been a leading water tank supplier for Dongara and surrounding areas, regularly attending shows and events like the Mingenew Field Day.

Although many who live to the south of the Mid-West Region may hold the mindset that it is a sunny tourists paradise, with crayfish and sheep, and beautiful beaches for sun and surf, those who reside in the area know it serves as an important hub for fishing and mining industries, in addition to being an expansive and plentiful rural area for grazing and crops.

Farmers and families who live in and around Dongara know that when they install a Pioneer Water Tank they have the backing and support of Australia's number one big tank company.


Dongara is located 60km south of the nearby hub of Geraldton. At the mouth of the Irwin River, the town is marketed as the 'Rock lobster capital of Australia'.

Water Tank Colours

Every Pioneer Water Tank constructed in Australia is made from Australian-made and sourced BlueScope Steel, and manufactured in the Australian Pioneer Water Tanks facility. Pioneer Water Tanks are available in either a conventional Zincalume ® finish, or in the full range of Colorbond ® colours found below.

The Dongara Climate

Dongara has a coastal Mediterranean climate, with long lasting hot summers, with cool evenings, and a short but wetter winter.

Dongara is dry most of the year round, with just 316 mm of rainfall in the average year, most of which falling in the winter months.


The area around Dongara was originally populated by wheat and sheep farmers, centred on the hamlets of Bookara, Irwin and Strawberry. There was also a small population of fishermen at Port Denison.

Dongara Water Storage Challenges

In a nation as dry as Australia, rain of any kind is often a welcomed sight, however, modern infrastructure like roads and footpaths, along with evolving weather conditions, can often lead to flash flooding thanks to stormwater runoff, which can cause extensive damage.

Thanks to the amount of rainwater that can be collected from a roof with adequate guttering, installing a rainwater tank can help relieve some of the stress on stormwater systems.

If a particularly wet period - much like the heavy rains that wreaked havoc in the Mid West and Murchison in early 2022 - drops 150mm of rainfall in Dongara in a 24-hour period, just 100 homes fitted with rainwater tanks can keep 3 million litres of water off of roads and storm drains.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire Preparation

While the area is renowned for its spectacular coastlines and farmland, Western Australia's Mid-West - like much of the state - is vulnerable to wide-spread bushfires in the dry summer heat, when grasses and vegetation lose their water.

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 adequate water storage to help yourself and emergency services in the event of bushfires.

A steel water tank can be used as both fire protection and water storage for the home, and Pioneer also offers a fire reserve option for your water tank if desired.

The best performed water tank in bushfire conditions

A Pioneer Water Tank performed better than the competition in bushfire simulation when testing was done by the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC in partnership with the CSIRO.

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

While a water tank will still prove adequate for watering gardens or lawns, if it has been exposed to fire, it is highly recommended that you get the tank water tested as soon as possible to ensure that it is still safe for household use.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial water tank liner

The Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the only antimicrobial tank liner available on the market today, and is proven to prevent the growth of algae and bacteria in your water tank.

The natural antimicrobial properties of silver and Sanitized ® technology are woven into the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner.

The most technically advanced, cleanest and strongest liner available on the market, this is an industry-leading product, comprised 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 designed with the single purpose of water storage in mind.

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to protect the tank liner, by protecting against stretching and wear, and the sheets are engineered to the ideal thickness for each panel, meaning we put the steel where it's needed most.

Don't just take our word for it, the design is so sound, it won an Australian Design Award for its strength and appearance.

Australian made water tanks - Dongara local service

Pioneer Water Tanks can provide truly local service to all Australians, regardless of where they are based, thanks to the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network, comprised of more than fifty experienced water tank dealers.

A water tank is only as good as the person who builds it, so Pioneer makes sure that our dealers are experts in water tank erection, all across our Dealer Direct Network.

Huckleberry Water Tanks are the local Pioneer Dealer Network member for the Mid-West, and can help with all of your water storage needs in Dongara, from the installation of your water tank and throughout its service life.

Dongara Historical Fact

The place name Dongara is an anglicised rendition of Thung-arra, the local Wattandee people's name for the estuary adjacent to the town, meaning 'sea lion place'.


European settlement around the estuary began in 1853 when a harbourmaster, was stationed there to look out for passing ships, and was granted 60,000 acres of pastoral leases about 15 kilometres inland. By the 1860s, ex-convict small farmers were occupying the local river flats, and a flour mill was operating.
