Our proud history of 40 years of support and service.

Over 40 years ago, the Knights saw a need in the community to provide compassionate care and inclusive service to the most vulnerable in our community, the ageing population. After years of hardwork and perseverance, the doors to our first aged care facility, Archbishop Duhig Court, were opened at Holland Park in 1979.

Since opening our first hostel in 1979 there has been a great deal of change in the delivery of care services to the community. Southern Cross Care Qld has grown to employ over 1,000 staff who provide services for more than 2,000 people. Our network includes thirteen aged care facilities, five retirement villages, and home care services across Queensland.
