Had lunch here to quench thirst in the heat. Veggie wraps were fine and beers were cold. Staff were pleasant and efficient.

Cafeteria style with burgers and a bar. Self service. Food was good and average priced. Very small town so only a couple choices for food.

A group of us were having some after dinner drinks here and dancing to the live music when we started to get harassed by an intoxicated indigenous woman.

Very relaxing bar and good service. Can sit back and listen to great Aussie music and enjoy a game of pool whilst having a beer, and the kids are welcome, we can even buy a pizza.
