An aussie icon is the dog on the tucker box with songs written and all. Whilst he is not a big statue I still feel it is something everyone must stop and see for a pic and a memory.

The whole area needs to be revitalised, the cafe is very dated, and even the famous "Dog on the Tuckerbox" needs sprucing-up. Our coffees were OK.

Why not stop and stretch your legs and perhaps get a refreshment at the shop nearby. Is it the best thing ever? No but since you’re passing by, why not?

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
