The Bowling Club has undergone a major refurbishment since we were last here. We went for the Wednesday Seafood Night and were pleasantly surprised by the choices. Fresh prawns, crabs etc plus plenty of other seafood as well as other international dishes all included in a one off cost of about $25 each. Service was great and staff very pleasant.

We have been there several times since the renovations and were pleasantly surprised at how inviting it is and what good food they present. There is an all you can eat buffet upstairs, which is great value on Seafood Night (Wednesdays) or the al la carte restaurant downstairs. There is a playground for children within watching distance for parents.

Without ID you can not be signed in as it has an in house casino (or pokies I believe they are called!) It was a Saturday night and there was good live music and the food was inexpensive and reasonably good although they take a while to serve as it is so popular. The menu was fairly limited but the...

This Asian buffet has the best array of food I have ever seen. It even has a sushi train in the middle. Selections are replaced frequently. The cake and slice deserts are to die for. A great restaurant.

We went to the seafood smorgasbord. Huge variety of food, from fresh prawns to cooked seafood, variety of Asian dishes, salads, sushi train and more, plus a wide variety of desserts. Great value. Tables were close to each other, and we were chatting to the other patrons on either side of us. Great night. would recommend.

Very nice club, friendly staff, food bar areas. Nice play area for kids. The food was very good and as expected at a club, very good prices especially the drinks. We went on a busy friday night and it took an hour to get our dinner so be prepared for a wait on busy nights. Overall very good.
