  • Avis Newcastle Airport
    Car Rental    Williamtown, NSW

    Prompt and friendly service on arrival at NTL airport. The hire desk is in a new building outside the terminal area and close to where cars are parked for pickup. No issues ever with pick up and drop off.

  • KFC
    Takeaways    Rosehill, NSW

    Used the drive through for a meal one evening when heading through town.
    It was really rainy so got wet through the window when ordering as there's no cover.
    Staff were friendly and order packed and delivered correctly.

  • The Woodbox
    Specialty Food    Tallebudgera, QLD

    This is a very cute little cafe featuring organic foods and they also specialise in in gluten free, vegetarian and healthy options.
    There's a very eclectic collection of tables, chairs and sofas and an interesting and quirky mix of home wares, gifts, books and posters around the rooms.
    Rally enjoyed the date & banana cake and a latte. Will be back!

  • Mercure Hotel Sydney
    Hotels    Rosehill, NSW

    Had a lovely stay here recently for business. Simon on the front desk was very friendly and welcoming.
    Stayed on the top floor (level 7) which had views. Great desk for work and chair to kick back and relax with a cuppa.
    Undercover parking is available and an onsite restaurant on the mezzanine level.
    The only issue with the whole stay was breakfast was cold (and cold eggs, bacon and mushies just don't do it for me!)
    Otherwise, if in Parramatta again, would be back. And it's walking distance to Woolies, KFC, Maccas, Hooters etc

  • Siguenos
    Takeaways    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Caught the opening night of the Siguenos food truck at Burleigh Brewing Co the other week. And glad we got in early! The place was packed and the food ran out it was so popular.
    Pricey for van food and a long wait, but a nice feed, not too filling.
    Stay tuned on social media for where to find them located around the Coast.

  • Chifley Penrith Panthers
    Hotels    Penrith, NSW

    Convenient hotel located in walking distance to The Panthers and local restaurants in Penrith.
    Check in was easy. Breakfast an extra $17.50 if wanted.
    Room was large and comfortable with nice views. Only let down was the really old bathroom.

  • Dr Boom Car Audio
    Vehicle Spare Parts    Eastgardens, NSW

    Recently purchased a Lifeproof case for my iPhone here and staff were helpful and able to fit it for me. Not sure that I need it to be water and snow proof, but seeing I'm great at dropping my phone, it should be much better off now.
    Can't say how they go at car audio, but definitely friendly and able to assist with the basics.

  • Hanks Seafood Restaurant
    Restaurants    Penrith, NSW

    Enjoyed the seafood basket here and a glass of wine when staying at the Chifley.
    The follow up Orange Marmalade Brulee with saffron gelato was a treat! Definitely recommend a meal here!
    And great setting with indoor and outdoor seating under the stars available.

  • NewsLink
    Newsagents    Bilinga, QLD

    Will often pick up a book or magazine here before heading off on a flight. Couldn't find Arianna Huffington's Thrive when last there, but staff tracked it down for me. Thanks! The team who work here are very friendly and efficient and have all the last minute items you'll need, including water, sweets, neck pillows and crosswords.

  • Janus
    Specialty Food    Sydney, NSW

    This is a really busy cafe / restaurant in a great location. Seating is limited but takeaway also available. I had a sit down lunch, ordered the lamb and grilled haloumi on soy & linseed sourdough. Definitely a two handed affair. Incredibly tasty and was full afterwards. Staff are attentive when seated. Great lunch location in the CBD.

  • Habitania
    Home Decor Retailers    Eastgardens, NSW

    This is a very cool homewares store in Eastgardens. Lots of colour and options. I had gone in to find a very small plate stand which they unfortunately didn't have, but friendly staff showed me what they did have... The dinner plates, servers, giftware, crockery etc is all really well displayed and it's a lovely shop to find that special something that's both really practical and looks good too - and guaranteed to match any kitchen colour scheme!

  • Swarovski
    Jewellery & Watch Retailers    Eastgardens, NSW

    This is a beautiful store in Eastgardens, but then, I'm yet to see a Swarovski store that isn't eye-catching. The latest collections are well displayed in the windows with larger than life Miranda Kerr pics showing her modelling them. There's always something for everyone at Swarovski, from the pens and cuff links to earrings and necklaces. Worth a wander by.

  • Thrower Fish & Chips
    Takeaways    Currumbin, QLD

    If you love super salty and uber greasy, this is the place. I loved the chips and potato scallops, but should definitely have ordered grilled fish, not fried (because I can delude myself that it would have made a difference!)
    One of those meals that I looked forward to, enjoyed and then regretted!
    Huge servings and dine in or takeaway options available.
    Nice to eat by Currumbin Creek, just over the road.

  • Hightide
    Pubs & Bars    Tullamarine, VIC

    This is a busy diner option in Melbourne Domestic terminal where you can always be sure of great options for hot food or a cuppa when waiting for a flight. Often quite busy but a good place for a feed. There's not much available after you head through security, so worth stopping before for a more substantial meal here.

  • P J O'Brien's
    Pubs & Bars    Tullamarine, VIC

    This is a great Irish pub and has been a feature at the check in floor in Melbourne airport for some time. The interior looks like an authentic Irish pub, with timber bar, cold beer options and good food when whiling away time before a flight.
    Staff are friendly and there's plenty of room to either perch out front for a beer, or sit inside for a more substantial meal - even when carting a suitcase.

  • Ambarella Fine Food Market
    Gourmet    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    This is a beautiful deli and cafe experience with exotic imports, tasty cheeses, cute homewares, great gifts and interesting options if you're looking for something a little bit different for dinner. Also features a fresh fruit and veg area, seafood and cheese / meat counters plus sweets, and a coffee shop. Definitely worth a browse when at the Burleigh Homemaker Centre.

  • Harvey Norman
    Home Entertainment Retailers    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    This is a huge Harvey Norman store, and often quite empty so can be a little hard to find a staff member when required. All the usuals tho, from Audio Visual area, kitchens, applicances, white goods etc.
    Recently purchased a rangehood and cooktop and got a great special; and a recommendation to a local tradesman who could help with the steel required, so happy with that!

  • Maitland Gaol
    Prison    East Maitland, NSW

    If you've got a couple of hours spare when passing through Maitland, this is a creepy way to spend your time. If you want to see how the inmates passed time, including the infamous Ivan Millatt, then the audio tour is for you. Each area has the numbers you can punch in to hear about what went on in each area. There's haunted tours (if you like that sort of thing) self guided and you can wait for tours...
    Hard to imagine the terrors that went on when the sun is out and you're just having a wander at your leisure.

  • Sushi World
    Takeaways    Pagewood, NSW

    Really enjoyed the variety here, the volcano rolls and salmon sushi were great.
    Easy quick stop for lunch at Eastgardens when by the fresh food outlets.

  • Penrith Panthers
    Sports Clubs    Penrith, NSW

    Great club in Penrith.
    6 restaurants, huge gaming area, bars and gift shop. Caters to all!
