Mark Smith

Stars of Eurobodalla 2022

Owner | Tribe cafe

Mark Smith and his wife purchased Tribe Café in October 2019. They arrive at the café by 6am ready to open at 7am. Providing great coffee and food in a friendly and relaxed setting is one of the best parts of the job. Mark’s uncle who worked in cancer research for all of his life was a big inspiration to get involved with Stars of Eurobodalla as well as seeing the impact of cancer on his friends and family. Although he has performed in front of an audience for many years as a musician (even releasing his own album in 2000)dancing in front of a crowd is pushing Mark way out of his comfort zone. Mark is an adventurous person though and has cycled 500km across Vietnam and Cambodia as well as has hiked the Great Wall of China raising a combined $50k for Black Dog Institute. Mark says hes met so many beautiful people living in the Eurobodalla region and lookforward to raising money for those affected by cancer within the community.
