NOTHING AUSTRALIAN about this bar!! No Australian food, beer, wine. Nothing, not even music! The waitress was French (fair enough, we’re in France) but when she spoke English she sounded more east end than ‘Coronation Street’, (bizarre). Drinks are relatively cheap. But DO NOT GO...More

Visited Ayers Rock late at night for the club that opens with a few friends. It was frankly an embarrassing night; the music they played was awful; not cheesey, remotely danceable or even vaguely good; just terrible infantile dub mixes of pop songs from several...More
