The Mt Gravatt Showgrounds are on 11 hectares of land bounded by Logan Road to the west, Broadwater Road to the north and Lay Street to the east, in the heart of the southern Brisbane suburb of Mt Gravatt. It is nestled near the base of the mountain and 20 minutes drive from Brisbane’s CBD.
The Showgrounds comprise publicly hireable indoor and outdoor spaces, offices for a range of business tenants, and sites where several long term tenant organisations go about their business. These latter organisations are the Mt Gravatt Show Society, the Mt Gravatt Minigolf and Footgolf, the Mt Gravatt Men’s Shed, Touch Rugby League, the Mt Gravatt Girl Guides, and the Rotary Club of Wishart.
The Showgrounds are also home to the Mt Gravatt Sunday Markets (held weekly between 6am and 12 noon), the Mt Gravatt Street Food (night markets held the first Saturday of every month) and the Mt Gravatt Show (held annually in July).
The Mt Gravatt Showgrounds are held in Trust for showgrounds, park and recreational purposes. The Trust and its operations are regulated under the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds Act 1988.
The site is used daily, both through formally hiring of our spaces and through informal activities such as jogging and walking a dog.
TRL play under the lights in the cool evenings on our grassed Main Arena. The heritage-style Memorial Hall, Community Hall and Church buildings, and the Hamlyn-Harris Pavilion are used for many events including community group meetings and workshops, religious activities, clothing markets, yoga, sport and business training, weddings and family functions. The Platform is also regularly hired for events hosting several thousand people by local community and cultural groups and businesses such as circuses.
