Before airfares became affordable & petrol more expensive, the family road trip to distant holiday destination was commonplace & a core part of the Aussie way of life. Hours of boredom were interspersed with spotty games, singalongs & the odd (and always extreme) road-side highlight: a running emu, an overloaded swaggie on a pushbike or even an old marathon man chugging along in gumboots! Today's cars offer luxuries such as air-conditioning, DVD players, cloth seats and tinted windows. The family car of the 70's & 80's featured items such as skin peeling vinyl seats, searing metal buckles & s scratchy am radio. The only air-conditioning was the 4/100 variety - four windows down at 100km/h with the kids' arms surfing the wind. On the road, a stifling hot car, Mum & Dad upfront arguing over directions & little sister crammed in the middle on the arm rest. The back seat would be jam-packed with more kids, pillows & possibly the family dog. The servo roadhouse on the horizon was a welcome reprieve from this hell-on-wheels & so became a highlight of the drive. Our Roadhouse Grill is a tribute to the great Aussie road trip, the fabulous cars of the era & our love for a great hearty feed for an even better price. Our hotel has always had a reputation for great value and this reputation continues with the Roadhouse Grill. Now you can sample all the highlights of the road trip plus a frosty cold beer...without enduring 400kms of blistering bitumen. YES, WE ARE HERE.
