This place offers a buffet style self barbie food area along with a pizza, burger fish and chips outlet. there are pool tables there and it is definitely the place to meet people who work on the surrounding lands with Aboriginal communities. UNlike the Sails, you can meet Aboriginal people here albeit in the smoking area

We Americans think of bbq over grills so we were a little put off by the flat grill. Nonetheless we had fun grilling our sausage sampler and Mom got a huge kangaroo steak which she finished!

We ordered a pizza from the outback pioneer kitchen. It seems the pizza chef does not know who to make an Aussie pizza with loaded shredded ham. It seems we received a pizza with loaded egg! Struth! I won't be eating there.

We had lunch here while we waited for our room to get ready. The lady who took our order told us it would be quite some time before our meal came and when it finally came the chicken schnitzel we order was overcooked and about a half portion. They may have had more folks to serve than they planned but... More

Loved the idea of Pioneer Bbq. You buy your protein/meat from the counter - beef, chicken, fish, emu sausage, kangaroo, crocodile, prawns etc. Salad bar and dessert bar. You then bbq your food as you want at the 15/20+ bbqs. Bar, music, live bands Great concept. However, we got there around 8.30pm. Should have been there more family time 6/7pm.... More

You select the type of meat, the cuts and all that and they give you pretty much everything you will need. They even give you selected times for BBQing the various cuts of meat. For... More
