(l-r) Emily -Cafe Manager, Cr Krista Adams, Anne-Maree – Hope Foundation

An exciting announcement of new operator for the cafe at Mt Gravatt Summit as Loretta Ryan interviewed Cr Krista Adams and Anne-Maree, representing the Hope Foundation.

“Hope Foundation is ecstatic about being the successful tender applicant. We have experienced hospitality staff ready to get in there and start things rolling; some of the Hope Chicks have already completed their coffee training through Di Bella Coffee, although being even partially operational will be about 4 weeks away. And we are – genuinely – delighted and encouraged by all the community support already coming our way. In short – YAY!!!”

Ann-Maree, Executive Assistant   |  HOPE Foundation

Hope FoundationWe are looking forward to partnering with the Hope team, building a strong future for Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve at the heart of our local community. An iconic bushland location just 10km from Brisbane CBD the Reserve is a special place, home to Koalas and Echidnas with strong links to both indigenous and European histories.

It is great news to know that the cafe will reopen soon and The Love Well Project, though a social enterprise, has a strong commercial focus with an experienced professional manager and backed by a valuable team of business mentors.

PlaygroundThe focus on weekday breakfasts and platters to share will complement and enhance the the way our community and visitors use the mountain, serving morning cyclists and families trying out the new picnic facilities.

Cr Adams and Brisbane City Council have worked hard to make Mt Gravatt Summit an ideal place for a picnic.


Toilet block - Summit - 9 June 2015Public toilets may not be as exciting as the brightly coloured playground but they are important infrastructure to make this a must visit tourist destination.






New seating and picnic tables, where friends can share a platter and what the sunset, complete the facilities for visitors.

Relax and enjoy a meal before exploring the mountain walking tracks.
