Our Sponsors

Located in Brisbane’s south-eastern Bayside suburb of Manly, the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is home to one of Queensland’s oldest and most prestigious recreational sailing and cruising clubs.  Formed in 1885, the Squadron has a long history of supporting and encouraging sailing as a sport that continues on today.

RQYS is a spectacular setting for functions; weddings, birthdays, conferences and corporate events are all regularly hosted with great success. Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron specialises in providing a unique experience for everyone.

RQYS are our End of Year celebration ‘venue sponsors’ – come and join us for drinks and canapés beside the Bay – 578 Royal Esplanade, Manly.

Locally owned, local decisions, investing locally and returning wealth to the community, not profiting from it. A full-service bank truly focused on Customer, Community & People.

Our Wynnum Manly Community Bank branch is opening on 4 December this year. We will be the only Community Bank in the area, supporting our local community by giving our time, resources and investing 80% of our retained profits back into the Wynnum Manly community. Bendigo Bank is the 5th largest bank in Australia and we offer all the products you can find at other financial institutions but with a community mindedness that sets us apart. Moving across to Bendigo Bank is very simple, just as is it to support your local community.

We are proud supporters of the BSDF End of Year Celebration this year. Come and celebrate with us!
