Here’s a collection of snapshots we’ve taken – go on, have a nosy! Just a tempter mind you – your best bet is to cruise in and let us show you around.
Queen's Birthday weekend was a blast here at The Cross. We had Shak Em On Downers in full swing, a cake off, high tea, costumes, decorations, a Monarchy vs Anarchy theme and even an appearance from the Queen herself.
Thanks your Majesty, for giving us a great excuse to get down on a Sunday night. Can't complain about that!
The Southern Cross in association with the AMI Round the Bays & Sport Wellington is pleased to have brought The Southern Cross Family Zone to the iconic Wellington fun run that is The AMI Round the Bays.
The Southern Cross was at Kio Bay with super soakers, water hoses and a great local wellington band for all your on course entertainment, then at the finish line with all the usual suspects showing. We had iced teas, water, vegetarian BBQ, kids face painting, half time oranges, ice pops plus a masseuse for all those aches and pains the run may have caused. Best of all, everything was FREE! - So we'll see you next year!
This event just keeps getting better – so much so that we’ve decided that holding it annually just isn’t often enough! Vinyl Club is a day hosted by our resident DJ Apa, where music enthusiasts can sell, swap and buy vinyl – all in the comfort of our lovely Guest Room (with a beer in their hand while they do it!). Sweet!
Every month we host a tasting event for our mailing list. We team up with our suppliers to bring you an evening of complimentary drinks, nibbles and the chance to learn something new – what’s not to like! Get involved, we promise you’ll love it.
In November 2011, The Southern Cross teamed up with Conscious Consumers to bring you “Sustain Yourself!” - a market day inspired by initiatives promoting community and sustainability in the greater Wellington region.
The Southern Cross Annual Golf Tournament has been held for over a decade. We hire a bus, load it up with customers and staff and head to Karori Golf Course, for a day of golf (Ambrose), beers and a kick-ass BBQ. The winning team gets prizes and a trophy to boot! Oh, plus a lot of glory. Don’t forget the glory.
In 2010 we turned up the heat and took a week to welcome the arrival of summer! We had seven days of fun and madness, including a treasure hunt, free bunches of flowers for mums, The Real Hot Bitches 80’s dance troop (lycra galore), speedos and mini-golf. Summer = WIN.
The Winter of 2009 didn’t phase us – in fact, we campaigned against it! This event was spectacular, with apple bobbing, loads of free live music, a sandpit, surfboards and prizes galore, including one lucky customer winning $1500 worth of travel! TAKE THAT WINTER!
