We are delighted to announce that from 13 September, the Southern Cross Club will be managing the iconic café and eatery on Mount Stromlo.

The Club’s relationship with Stromlo goes back a long way. In 1996, the Club joined forces with the Stromlo Exploratory complex to help fund the building of the astronomy education and tourism centre. Now, 20 years later, we are proud to be launching Southern Cross Stromlo – a new eatery plus functions and event space on the top of Mount Stromlo, with arguably the best views in Canberra.

The newly refurbished space was previously occupied by Red Belly Black and more recently Scope. Southern Cross Stromlo is set to open on Tuesday 13 September and adds to the many attractions of Mount Stromlo, one of Canberra’s iconic and significant locations.

“Mount Stromlo is a special place and is among Canberra’s most beautiful spots to visit,” said CEO Ian Mackay. “This venture is part of our plan to provide hospitality and events in Canberra’s best locations.”

The initial menu, designed by Southern Cross Club Tuggeranong’s Executive Chef Anurag Gautam, will focus on light breakfast options, gourmet sandwiches, baguettes and panini, along with fresh salads, hot food, coffee and cakes.

Simon Plummer, General Manager of the award winning Southern Cross Yacht Club, is overseeing the design and fit out. “Our first requirement is to ensure we serve great food and great coffee from day one” he said. “Our partnership with local coffee roaster, Lonsdale Street Roasters, is continuing and they are developing a custom made aromatic ‘Stromlo Blend’ for us to use exclusively.”

Southern Cross Stromlo will initially trade 7 days a week from 9-4pm on weekdays and 7.30am to 5pm on weekends. We look forward to welcoming the people of Canberra to the top of the mountain to enjoy the wonderful views and great Southern Cross Stromlo hospitality.
