Sue,Alex and all the staff were accomidating to say the least. We had the bacon & egg rolls with the special relish, amazing and the coffee was a great way to finish off our snack. Thank you and we will be back without a doubt.

Attended this venue to get info on the Mungo and Yanga National Parks. Was surprised at all the other information available to travellers. This is a venue that obviously values local history. I was impressed.
