All I am going to say is this place has awesome steak, probably the best steak I have had in a very long while and given we eat out frequently in our travels across Australia in Cattle Country and top restaurants alike the Austral Hotel does beef lovers proud. Well done guys..........

Stop in here for lunch or dinner is a must. Wish we had have come early during our 3 week holiday however probably best we didnt or else we wouldn't have tried some of the other restaurants. Clean and wait staff happy to mix and change mains and sides to suit us on a fussy day . Convinced to have a signature pie when I wouldn't pick a pie when dining out however so glad I did. DELISH!!

Came here with my husband and friend and food was honestly disappointing. Friend ordered medium rare steak, came rare and her oysters were not fresh. I ordered the black Angus steak medium rare, was over cooked and chewy and husband ordered catch of the day and it was extremely small. All our salads were in poor condition and not fresh and to pay almost $5 for it is ridiculous. Not to mention the beverages and service was poor as well.... Won't be coming back.

The day we went to lunch it was very busy and we didn't have a reservation as it was a last minute decision. We still were able to sit at a clean table. Drinks were cold, the menu provides a variety of choices and was fast. Plenty of room for a pram and change table facilities. Staff greeted us and said goodbye when we left.
Tip: order the salmon

The Austral hotel provides consistent quality food and ice cold beer.

Located in town with a TAB and also family friendly.

The steaks are a must.
