Hope no-one on the WA coastline has been washed away in the cyclone!
Bet the crabbing will be good in a few weeks.

There are high water resistant prefab concrete rectangular tanks with manhole made in australia.
Also the makers use a australian army sealant which makes the tanks fully water proof even for fuel storage!
You would be advised to have a minimal offlevel angle on the tank with a floor level drain hole just in case to prevent water buildup and a pipe running away from the drain.

You know you can build your bunker above ground and earth mound it and allow local shrubs and grass to grow on and around. With some logs and rocks they can be invisible.

Also you don't have to worry about water tables and the earth gives you the same protection as below ground and cheaper to build. ;)

Ladies and gentlemen, regarding hot drinks...there are a lot of plants you can grow to use the green leaves to make a green tea. Lemon verbena, lemon balm,, lemon grass, chinese loquat tree.  You can also grow your own camellia sinensis which is the plant they harvest leaves from to roast that makes the black tea you drink.

To Ecogirl's list, add Morocan mint, any of the mints except eau de cologne. I particulary like a mix of apple mint, lemon balm and lemon verbeena. They reckon dandelions too.

Yeah some are huge and the occupants nasty when stirred up ( no pun intended)
Some super duper ones at brampton beach near Innisfail FNQ.
I have seen them in shoalwater bay army reserve as well down near three rivers.
As well as the giant fresh water prawns.
