One Year at Sugar Country Motor Inn

One Year at Sugar Country Motor Inn

This June we have celebrated Geoff and Sharlene’s 12-month anniversary as the Property Managers at Sugar Country Motor Inn. Both Geoff and Sharlene are dedicated to providing friendly and quality service for all guests and aim to make Sugar Country a welcoming home-away-from-home whether you are a local, travelling family or busy corporate.

Proud locals themselves, Geoff and Sharlene have been living in Bundaberg since the early 2000s and have recently adopted Harry Houdini, a Pineapple Conure (small South American parrot). They love their Queensland town for its temperate climate, vibrant food culture and exceptional attractions – from the beaches and art galleries, to the Bundaberg Rum Factory and the Mon Repos Turtles there’s always something new they want to experience!

Canecutters Kitchen – our contemporary restaurant – has been a significant addition to Sugar Country Motor Inn. Geoff and Sharlene love the fresh and fun restaurant interior and innovative menu. Being able to provide both comfortable accommodation and exciting dining and function solutions for the Bundaberg region is what ultimately enticed them to join Southern Cross Motel Group.

Next time you’re in Bundaberg, or just happen to be in our area of town, make sure to drop in for a coffee, a meal or a cold beer and say hello!

Scottish Highland Cattle Come to Junee

Scottish Highland Cattle Come to Junee

Highland Cattle from all over the country came to Junee at the beginning of June for the National Highland Cattle Show, held over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. After enjoying his stay and warm welcome at Junee Motor Inn, the event organizer, John Cummings, advocated for the society to host their 27th Annual National Show in the wonderful and modest town of Junee. It’s the first time in seven years the show has been held in New South Wales, with the Riverina one of the fastest growing regions for the unique breed. Undeniably the cutest breed around, the Scottish highland cattle were judged on the strength and curve of their horns and the length of their outer coat of hair, with calves as young as 2 months old participating. Congratulations to all the winning cows and their hard-working owners!

It was wonderful to see the 140 members of the Australia’s Highland Cattle Society enjoy the hospitality of the Junee region and we hope to see some adorable highland cows back again soon.
