Great authentic pub. Good hot food, well cooked. Specials are well priced. Steaks are similar to other places or a little more. Prepare to wait if they are full in the restaurant. Good food, good drinks, fun atmosphere.

Steaks are always good (and food here in general) and no exception this time. However the steak I had must have been pre-cooked and was only just warm. On the plus side, we got our food super quick after ordering, especially for a steak.

The service was very slow, nearly 30mins for two meals, which meant we had to rush our dinner as we had a show at the MECC. Cash only bar. Food was very good though.

I travel regularly to Mackay on business and if I'm not in the mood to challenge myself my default ' old faithful ' venue always the Austral. Great steaks , good value and a great selection of beers at the bar never disappoints .
