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.

All Roads Should Lead Here
Food, drinks, entertainment and accommodation can all be found at Junction Hotel. Open from 10am seven days a week, it is a great place to get something to eat or meet up with friends for a session.
We dropped in for a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised with the taste and quality of our meals. There was plenty to choose from the extensive menu. The prawn bruschetta was light and tasty and the addition of preserved lemon was delicious.
The salads were enjoyable and totally different to each other, it was hard to say which was the best, but I must admit I am always partial to Binnorie feta and beetroot. The noodle salad had a light ginger and mango dressing and was not covered in sweet chilli sauce as is popular in some places.
The restaurant was quite busy with celebratory family groups but the service was impeccable and the food was served in a timely manner. Children's meals are available for $12, including a paddle pop for dessert. The bar serves a wide range of beers on tap as well as cocktails and Hunter Valley wines.
Junction Hotel will cater for functions and you could stay in one of their nine air-conditioned rooms (starting at $139p/n). From 7:30pm on Friday & Saturday nights there is live music in the hotel and they have various weekly specials such as Tuesday $16 steak night.
