Enthusiasts' Morning - BBQ Breakfast - Saturday 25th November commencing 7:30 am. - Sound Garage, Unit 2/70 Flinders Parade, North Lakes.

Sound Garage is holding a complimentary breakfast of bacon,eggs, sausages, and tea/coffee for members of the Mercedes Benz Club of Qld.

All members are invited including their family.This is a social event designed for members who wish to have a good time while talking about their cars. I must thank Terry Philip for all his
efforts in organizing this event.


As this is a catered event we owe it to the Sound Garage to have our acceptances to president@mbclubqld.com. The deadline for registering is Wednesday 22nd November.


Please just don't turn up on the morning as it is not fair to both Terry and Sound Garage. Sound Garage will
no doubt order according to the numbers that Terry gives them on Wednesday 22nd November and so let's
not embarrass them.

Many Thanks
Geoff

St Bernard’s Hotel

Robert Muir built St Bernards House in 1881 on the site of the present Council Quarry on Kaiser Road, as an accommodation house for its managers and staff. He bought almost 2000 acres of heavy scrubland at the top of the southern end of the mountain intending to grow sugar cane when the land was cleared. Mr. Muir was drowned in the flooded Logan River at Yatala in 1887.

Following owners started a village settlement and moved St Bernards to its present site in 1898. During its history, St Bernards has had many varied roles including Post Office receiving centre, in 1915 it became a licensed property, the 1920’s saw St Bernards as a convalescent Private Hotel and an accommodation House for up to 100 guests. The tariff was three pound fifteen shillings per week.

The main part of the hotel (the lounge and public bar) was built by John Siganto in 2012–2014 and the hotel licence was required then.

St Bernards is the largest and most famous Hotel on the Mountain, located in heart of Gold Coast Hinterland.
