Southern X Stromlo

Cotter Road, Weston Creek

The iconic café and eatery at Mount Stromlo Observatory is now serving wine, beer & cider!

Canberra is blessed with beautiful scenery. What better place to appreciate this than on top of an iconic mountain, enjoying our famous Southern Cross hospitality.

The menu includes light breakfast options, fresh sandwiches, baguettes and panini, along with daily salads and gourmet pizza. The menu has been designed by Southern Cross Club Tuggeranong’s Executive Chef, Anurag Gautam and also includes some gluten free options.

We look forward to welcoming you to the top of the Mountain to enjoy the wonderful views, the visitors centre and great food and hospitality.

Southern X Stromlo is open 9am-4pm from Monday to Friday and 8.30am-4pm on weekends. The cafe does not take bookings.

“Very impressed with the friendly service received, prices are reasonable considering the venue is isolated and the views of the Brindabella Mountain ranges/valleys are stunning. Couple that with the interesting features and history of Mt Stromlo Observatory, made it an enjoyable visit. Only negative is not a lot of choice on the menu but what they do serve is excellent so who cares!”
