I’m sure this place has kicked on with Oliver’s moving next door. Good burgers reasonable prices milkshakes could be improved with addition of cold milk and being made with a ‘bit more love’.

The Dog on The Tuckerbox is exactly what it says on the tin. It's a ststue of a little dog sitting on a lunchbox. It is gloriously naff but we loved it. It is such a quirky and strange attraction that you've just got to...More

Its an icon you just have to stop off at on a road trip down the Hume. The dog is only tiny, compared to other site such as the big merino, but its a great novelty. There is a shop next door that supposedly sells...More

Not sure what the last sook is on about, we loved this as a place to stop. Next to the highway, a couple of options for food- none of which was overpriced. We ate at the cafe across the road and it was brilliant. Toilets...More

Felt this was a 'must see' as we were passing through. However, very upset with it. The dog and tucker box sits in a little pond or fountain that is filthy. Water is green, stagnant and smelly. Place overall is like a dump site and...More

Lovely and so special to see it. The property around the dog is fun to walk around. The cafe provides a nice stop for food
