The venue was lovely. The host was very entertaining and the staff were lovely. The food prepared for us, stew, 2 kinds of damper, and gem scones with jam and cream, were delicious. I would suggest bringing cash for the souvenir items, yummy jams, spices...etc. The lighting for the entrance/exit to the venue needs some work, as it is dark when you arrive and leave which makes it difficult to find the entrance and to find the path to exit with a vehicle. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed the evening.More

The outdoor setting is perfect. The host is entertaining; The staff are all friendly and helpful. Everything is low key and casual. The food is basic but extremely tasty. It is BYO alcohol, but you do not need to bring any alcohol as it is...such an entertaining evening. The weather was PERFECT. The bush tea was the tastiest I have ever had.More

Thank you Alison, for the wonderful review, and thankyou for coming and sharing a lovely evening under the stars with us. The secret of the tea is the gumleaf, that takes the bitterness out of the tea. If you pick the leaf from a flowering...More

What an amazing night! The food was to die for but those scones were like heaven! Such a warm welcome when I got there too, for a solo traveller you made me feel right at home and like part of the family. A delicious dinner...under the stars accompanied by some hilarious tales what more could you want from life! Marksie, Penny and the girls were so lovely and accommodating, I honestly can’t fault the night. Thanks so much guys, I take my hat off to all of you. PS Sorry I dropped the billy so many times but at least I learnt which hand is my proper spinning hand now 😂😂More

This was a first class night out! Food was great, Marksie was very entertaining and the whole night moved along well. I was surprised when the night ended and I realized how late it was. I enjoyed the show and felt pleased to know that...overseas visitors would get such an authentic, well organized Australian bush tucker experience.More

I recently spent 6 months touring Australia. Of all the wonderful memories the evening I spent with Marksie and Penny is one of the best! Sitting near the fire under the amazing Katherine stars, holding a baby wallaby in my arms, hearing fascinating stories and...eating the best stew I ever tasted made for an unforgettable evening. Not sure why this is listed under restaurants because it is a total entertainment experience. An evening with Marksie made my trip special!More
