Bugger Broken Hill, I’ve just had a much better idea.
Out of interest I plugged into google maps and tested one part of a theory. Check. Then another part…. check. A third part? Check. Suddenly it all came together: a gourmet road trip to some of Australia’s finest country restaurants.
Grazing in Gundaroo. Stefano’s in Mildura. The Victory Hotel at Sellicks Hill in McLaren Vale. And top of the list: the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld, The Age’s Country Restaurant of the Year 2009 and Australian Gourmet Traveller’s Regional Restaurant of the Year 2009.
The dates fit. Bookings can be made. Frankly a trip this good needs a companion, but who would be interested in such a journey. Any takers??
