We have recently travelled by road to Brisbane and back.
Travelling north was via the coast and the return journey was on the inland route, passing through Goondiwindi, Lighting Ridge, Bourke and Griffith.
For many evenings meals we availed ourselves of the various clubs, especially in NSW. These are reasonably priced, centrally located and offer some surprisingly good food.
In Swan Hill, Victoria, we had a meal at the RSL, which was next door to our motel. It was a Sunday night and the only patrons were people of our vintage and many who were a lot older.
The bar and waiting staff were at least two generations younger and this was reflected in the music that was being played.
While the older generation were enjoying their Grilled Barramundi, Reef n’ Beef and Parmi, they were subjected to a medley of Chicago House, Rap and Detroit Techno.
Fortunately most of them could block out the music by turning down the volume on their hearing aids.
