Aussie Helpers

your stay will buy hay
For every room we sell, we donate to Aussie Helpers, the only charity of its kind that supports farmers when times are tough. Banjo Paterson Motor Inn & Restaurant is a local donation collection point in Townsville, helping to continue to save farmers and their animals. With no feed in their stock and no water in their dams, farmers rely on us to lend a helping hand. Remember, No Aussie Farmers means No Aussie Food!
