Millbank: Where To Go / Sightseeing

South Sea Islander Church and Hall


The South Sea Islander Church and Hall commemorates the enormous contribution provided by the South Sea Islander community in establishing a viable sugar cane industry in Bundaberg. The hall itself was built circa 1920 to cater to the spiritual needs of the South Sea Islander population who were harvesting sugar at Fairymead Plantation.

In 1995 the South Sea Islander Church and Hall was relocated to its current position, near the Bundaberg Cemetery. The current location was the place of many South Sea Islander burials. A memorial garden was established over the unmarked graves housed in the current location.

The South Sea Islander Church and Hall is still used today and provides a tangible link between the community and the experience of the South Sea Islander Ancestors.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial and Park


A pavilion in Bundaberg is Queensland's only war memorial specifically honouring the women who tended the injured behind battlelines in WWI. The sugar city's mayor FH Buss officially opened the Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial on 15 October 1949.

The stucco and terracotta tiled building with arched openings cost more than ?1000, raised in just seven weeks by public subscription and fundraising by Bundaberg General Hospital and the women of the Red Cross.

The memorial honours 12 local women who served as nursing sisters in WWI and four who served in WWII, two of whom died: one as a Japanese prisoner of war and the other in the sinking of the Centaur.

The Memorial Pavilion can be found in a triangular-shaped park planted with palm trees, dominated by a water tower, opposite the Bundaberg Base Hospital.

Old National Australia Bank Building


Take a step back in time and admire the architecture from a different time at the former Commercial bank of Sydney building.

This majestic building was completed in 1891 and is important in demonstrating the evolution of Bundaberg as a regional centre, as well as the evolution of the early competitive banking facilities in rural Queensland.

Prior to 1872 there were no banking facilities in Bundaberg. There was a Customs House established on the banks of the Burnett River but the duties had to be paid in Maryborough. In April 1872 a rep from the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney arrived in Bundaberg to assess the viability of a bank in the town. He left town a day later promising to establish a branch in Bundaberg in the following months. The day after the CBC rep departed a rep from the Bank of NSW rode into Bundaberg from Maryborough to announce the branch was open for business. The Commercial Banking Company of Sydney opened in June 1872 but was forced to close their doors in October 1873 due to the Bank of NSW securing most of the banking business in town.

Moncrieff Entertainment Centre


The Moncrieff Entertainment Centre (MEC) is the cultural heart of the Bundaberg region. Boasting an 863 seat theatre, the calendar of good times keeps coming seven days a week for 12 months of the year. Featuring second run movies moments after their first release, the Cinema program locks in ticket prices at a low AUD8. The MEC also presents free community movies, live-streamed simulcasts, and a program of high quality live entertainment. Their community based program also provides local groups with the opportunity to raise funds. The MEC is the go-to venue for your enjoyment in Bundaberg.

The Moncrieff Entertainment Centre is named after 'Our Glad' Gladys Moncrieff, world famous musical star who was born in Bundaberg. Originally the Olympia Airdome, an open air theatre built in 1920, it was enclosed as the Olympia Theatre in 1955; refurbished as the Crest Theatre in 1973; and reconstructed as the Moncrieff Theatre during 1985 to 1987. With the update of the venues' facade in October 2011 it seemed the perfect opportunity to undertake a name change. Moncrieff Entertainment Centre better describes the venue, as all forms of entertainment, including cinema, live theatre, concerts and conferencing are held there.
