Mt Carmel Centre is owned by Brisbane Catholic Education but started its life in 1915 as a convent for the Sisters of Mercy. The Sisters taught at Guardian Angels School next door and brought Catholic education to the Bay area. In 2011 the building was purchased by a private owner with plans to open a Bed and Breakfast, but was sold to Brisbane Catholic Education in 2014. After a refurbishment to return the convent back to its original, architectural glory, the doors are now open to the corporate market, providing office space, meeting and event space. MCC now has an onsite event management team that provides excellent service for all your event, meeting or office needs.
