Double Your Rewards at Southern Cross Club

With four unique venues across Canberra, the Southern Cross Club is the place to meet up with friends, have a meal with your family and enjoy quality entertainment – so why not help your local raise money for those in need?

Just in time for Easter, the Community Rewards Program has doubled Rewards for over 80 Community Rewards partners. For each dollar spent on food and beverages in the public restaurants, bars and grills at the Woden, Tuggeranong, Jamison and Yacht club venues, 15 cents will be donated to the nominated group participating in the program.

Launched in 2015, the Community Rewards Program has already donated over $1 million to participating Community groups, which include sporting groups, schools, charities, community groups and more. Each of these groups contribute to the community in meaningful ways so why not support your local community by nominating your favourite group?

With key values of providing good times and good memories, Southern Cross Club is the best place to meet up with friends and family to celebrate Easter.
