Never travel on Anzac Day especially to the outback. There was practically nothing open for lunch except this place. I ordered a pasta bolognese which was so so. Not quite what I wanted for lunch but options were limited.

We had dinner at Sportie's a couple of evenings and enjoyed it very much. The food is good, reasonably priced and the service is very friendly. Good beer on tap and the option of excellent outdoor dining.
