I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

The Happy Wombat is a relaxed friendly place for food and drink that serves meals from breakfast through to dinner six days a week closing at three pm on Sundays. The decor is quirky and comfortable and the staff and patrons are friendly and welcoming. Seating is in the dining area or in the bar where you can check out the range of craft beers on offer.

Barramundi (the fish of the day) was served in a spicy Asian inspired broth and was very moreish. The roast dinner was a huge serve and everything was cooked to perfection. They are family friendly serving meals to your little wombat. Adults are well catered for with a range of craft beers, spirits, wine and cocktails as well as occasional entertainment in the form of comedy events, tap takeovers and live music.
