I drove three hours to attend a private event beheld here. Very long and de stressing story short. Their cafe has no procedures in place that are customer friendly eg: cash only, food brought to the table but if you want cutlery you need to go down to cafe and get it yourself. Owner doubles as the rudest waitress I have ever come across and when you pull her up on her behaviour she releases a tirade of abuse from extreme verbal to boarder line physical! This place is at the top of my top 10 of most horrific social outings in my 42 years. Several other people in my party had terrible experiences and we witnessed several other patrons face difficulties with either the service or service procedures/s

This place is awesome. Cheap drinks, beautiful setting and friendly people all around. I have been to a few functions here (birthdays, bucks and work xmas parties) and have had an absolute blast every time.
The food is fantastic and staff super friendly. It is a bowling club, NOT a cocktail bar, so if you want a place to go for a few hours to chill and have a few drinks, with the added bonus of playing a great sport, this is the place for you.

Bowles club is nice, but staff very grumpy an unorganised: Offer common cocktails but ask how to prepare them. Food is good for its value, but takes ages (waited 45 minutes on nachos!)

Great place to lawn bowl, cheap drinks and friendly staff to show you the ropes. Worth a visit after a picnic in new farm park.

Go visit this great adventure park with lots of room for all ages to run wild and its free. Set amongst the hanging tree roots. Lots of entertaining things for kids to do, swings, slides, climbing
walkways above the ground which ramble around the trees. Picnic tables , grass areas, for picnic or snacks. Has a shop nearby for coffee and snacks. Parking at kerbside when you drive in. Toilets near by. So much to do older kids will be off exploring and you can have a coffee in peace.
