I had to give 1 star as you can't give any lower, otherwise I would have given 0. My comments relate to our food experience only. My elderly parents traveled to Townsville to take me out for my birthday. I suggested we go to the Australian Hotel as I hadn't been in a couple of years. Both my father and I ordered the beer battered mackerel with chips & salad. Now to advise this was the worst meal I have ever tasted would be an extreme understatement. [My father who never complains also agrees with my comments] I have never written complaints before but was compelled to do so here. I knew something was wrong as soon as I saw the dish. There were 2 pieces of fish where a very pale yellow. The fish seemed to be taken straight out of the fridge which was in there from at least the previous night. The fish was cold and seriously we had to use force to even cut the thing as it is was that rubbery. My father & I ate half a piece each & could not bear the taste. Seriously I was disgusted and shocked with the food and I am the type of person who can eat anything anywhere. I won't even bother complaining about the quality of chips & salad. By the way, my mother ordered the chicken with some type of creamy mustard sauce and said is was not very good, chicken was dry and not much taste to the sauce and the steamed veges were plain. Again I cannot stress how disgusted I was with this meal and would recommend you go somewhere else. Bar & table service was fine.

CRAP SERVICE - took long enough to be seated, bread took over half an hour to come?, have to get your own drinks. OK FOOD - took another 30 min! brushetta was kinda worth the wait, pasta was nice, side salad good, need to learn how to cook steak(we wanted MR), CRAP garlic sauce, chips were cold, no one meal checked! Does have a decent range around $20 though.

The beer garden is nice. Nice and open in main bar. Beer is overpriced. Pot and Parma for $10 on a Wednesday is good value.
