Supporting local communities is part of our DNA at Southern Cross Motel Group. In big ways and small, we ensure we are paying attention to what is going on in our towns, and we are constantly on the lookout for ways to assist.
Both The Downtown Motor Inn and The Palms Motel in Chinchilla sponsor local charities including the local RSL and St Joseph’s School Fair.
Windmill Motel and Event Centre in Mackay is active in sponsoring sporting groups, including the Queensland Mountain Bike Championships and the Pioneer Swimming Carnival.
It’s our way of supporting the locals and giving back whenever we can.
The weather is starting to warm up and soon it will be time to pack away those winter woollies and embrace all the fabulous recreational opportunities in our regional centres. You might be surprised what is happening around the countryside.
How about a visit to Chinchilla, for the Queensland State Polocrosse Championships on 2 & 3 September? We have two quality accommodation options for your visit: The Chinchilla Palms Motor Inn or the Chinchilla Downtown Motor Inn.

The Galloping Gully Polocrosse Carnival is held annually on the second week of August, just outside of Narrabri. The emphasis is on a fun weekend of sportsmanship, fun and catching up with friends.

The Moore Park Beach Art’s Festival features a seaside view of a relaxed pleasant country lifestyle and approximately 20 kilometres of beautiful golden beaches. Free entry is always a good start to a family friendly festival day – you set the pace on how much or little you do – above all enjoy the day. The festival is based in Moore Park Beach, a short drive from Bundaberg on 18-20 August and includes art exhibitions, entertainment, workshops and fun activities for young and old. This year’s festival takes on a new look with celebrations continuing into Saturday night with Phil Emmanuel performing and an amazing fireworks display to finish off the night. Check out your quality Bundaberg accommodation options at Takalvan Motel or Sugar Country Motor Inn.

Windmill Motel and Events Centre is hosting the Flagon & Dragon Mackay lunch on Friday 13th October. Every dollar raised will go to help children in need in the local Mackay Region.
Tickets are sold out for the event but you can still donate via their Go Fund Me Page at https://www.gofundme.com/flagon-dragon-2017
Flagon & Dragon is a biennial fundraising event, created to help raise much-needed funds to children’s wards in all Mackay District hospitals, as well as for other organisations that focus on the needs and support of our children and young people. Flagon and Dragon is a luncheon like no other and delivers an atmosphere of fun and excitement whilst at all times focusing on raising as much money as possible. We have secured some amazing auction items and silent auctions using our own hands-on electronic machines for fun and effect.
Throughout the history of the event we have raised in excess of $1m through the generosity of people from Mackay and the surrounding district. This year we have a very ambitious $250,000 target so we need your help more than ever to achieve this!
For your next event in Mackay, contact Rachel Ellis 0447 499 013.
