Meal of the Day
As mentioned in previous posts, Australia is not the cheapest place to eat out. Aussie pubs though often offer big meals at not so big prices. If you’re willing to go with the daily specials you could easily get a hearty budget meal everyday of the week. For example, on the days we dined the two hotels pictured above had $10 deals – one for steak and dessert and the other for roast pork and veges. Pubs are generally family friendly, with indoor and outdoor eating sections. Kids are taken care of with simple child pleasers such as the burger and chips or spaghetti shown above. Often included for the little ones are juice, an ice cream and even an activities bag with colouring pages and games. Many pubs are in prime locations with attractive views such as Eagle Heights (first photos) overlooking the Gold Coast, and the Benowa Tavern (last photos) with fresh river breezes and a water vista. Every suburb has their own watering hole. The best way to decide on which one to head to is to ask a local.

  1. wow, great green spaces! it's such a shame that 99 percent of the pubs & eateries in KL seem to overlook just roads, buildings, housing estates & other man-made structures, but no really lush, wide open spaces….

  2. It's relaxing being with nature when you eat. I guess it's a bit hot to do too much outside here though. A green garden outlook at least would be welcome.
