Catering and reception facilities

Brisbane City Council offers catering and reception services at Pinnaroo, Mount Gravatt and Hemmant Cemeteries and Crematoria. We provide a peaceful environment for family and friends to have a cup of tea or coffee and a selection of food after a funeral service.

Each facility has an indoor and outdoor area for guests with a caterer on-site.

The refreshments room at:

  • Pinnaroo and Mount Gravatt can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests
  • Hemmant is relatively small and suits smaller groups up to approximately 70 guests. Indoors can accommodate up to 50 guests with an additional 20 to 25 in the outdoor undercover area.

Council contracts an external caterer who offers set menus. We strongly recommend you choose a menu appropriate for the time of day of the service:

  • morning tea
  • lunch (light lunch or buffet lunch)
  • afternoon tea.

The caterer is on-site during the service. They can provide additional food (biscuits and beverages) if more guests arrive than estimated and charge accordingly. The caterer may be able to provide more substantial food if requested.

Some restrictions apply:

  • only caterer provided food permitted on the premises
  • alcohol is prohibited.
