Coming down the Burnett Highway in Queensland, we discuss our craving for a pub roast and the fact that we haven’t seen a pub advertising cheap meals in a long time. Lo and behold at the next town the Mulgildie Pub has a board out for $10 roasts. We can’t get inside quick enough.
The old wooden pub is painted bright green with quirky drawings everywhere. Inside it is a feast of art and craft for sale. The ladies loo has ducks painted on the seat and the men’s loo is a little scarier with barbed wire. We sit on the tiny verandah and munch our super cheap roast rolls whilst gazing across the cow paddocks. This is a top pub. They have a free van park out the back but we fear that ‘free’ may become more expensive for weak folks like us.
