Grey Gum Cafe - Satellite Phone

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' started by 69SIM, Aug 5, 2016.

  1. Just a bit of a heads up, Grey Gums Cafe is currently operating a tip jar to get enough funds together to purchase a satellite phone to help in case of an emergency with motorcycle accidents as reception in that area is very poor.

    You can check out their FB page for more info.

  2. You got to give it to Kim,cafe owner,brilliant idea. I thought the Motorcycle Council was agitating for more mobile towers up there. Its a long drive for an Ambo when there needed bad.

  12. Grey Gum Cafe is permanently up for sale. John's health is not good and Kim is finding it very difficult to run on her own. If someone came among with a fat chequebook and made an appropriate offer, John and Kim would set aside their long term plans for the place and retire....

  13. I'll have to crowd fund some money. That place would be worth a fortune...
  14. They were very close to a huge deal with a motorcycle manufacturer a few years back. It involved continuing with the cafe and expansion of Kim and John's property into a big motorsport park, motocross track, enduro circuit, tar training track etc etc. Sadly late into the negotiations the deal fell through...
