My wife and I travel regularly from Melbourne to Brisbane to see family and friends we choose this route because of the scenery and the fact that we both love to fish we stop at various places along the way to dangle a line.
Our favourite place to stop is the Kempsey Powerhouse Motel both coming and going, we are always greeted with a warm welcome from Bev and Neil and after unpacking and having a hearty meal sit and chat with Bev and Neil for hours during and after closure, we have become friends with their family and often their kids pop in and visit us when in Melbourne, Bev and Neil have pointed out various places of interest in and around the surrounding area, the local music is top class, it will be an added bonus when they complete the Slim Dusty museum.
