The Community Lounge is a welcoming place for all members of the community and visitors to the area. Enjoy a hot drink and a complimentary homemade sweet treat. You can meet with friends or have a chat to our friendly volunteers.

There is a selection of upcycled and handmade items including preserves made from local produce, handmade crafts, clothing, gift hampers and pamper products. Most of the retail items are produced by volunteers to support our social enterprise. There is also a free book exchange, and outdoor seating in a large child-friendly backyard with a cubby and sandpit. Dogs are welcome on a lead.

On Tuesdays we have gourmet toasties available in spring and summer, and hot soup in autumn and winter for a $4 donation. The Lounge is staffed entirely by volunteers and all proceeds support Manna Gum’s community services and programs.
