    Bump. Just pulled into Michelago servo for a biological break and grab some minties for the drive. +1 Disgusted at state of loos and whole place a complete dive. Almost engaged 4WD to get to the forecourt and out again. Pulling out back on to the Monaro like a scene from the Fast and the Furious. Unlikely to stop there again.
    One Star (Max).

    I stopped there on 2004, then again in 2015. That was two times too many stops there.

    Had dinner there about 4 years ago and it was ok. Means zilch now, I know ;)

    Driving to Canberra this evening, travelling about 90km/hr due to slow car 3 ahead. Tradie Ute flys up behind, tailgates and flicks the high beam up. Overtakes on the double lines and moves between me and 3 slow cars them slams the brakes, coming to a stop in front of me. In the dark, on the hiway, over a crest (double lines for a reason). Then speeds off to sit behind the slow cars all the way to Canberra. Turned off at Tuggers, which I thought quite appropriate.

    WTF is it with some people.

    I did a lads trip a few years ago. We had a beer there on Mothers day. Two of us had rung our mums and didn't miss our exes. The third had to drive us out of there. Anyway, nice classic small aussie pub. Worth a stop for a pie and a beer.

    I use to stop there about 15 years ago and the owner of the hotel/servo would cooky ou bacon and eggs on the indoor hotplates. It was pretty good, the old owner was always up for a chat. That owner sold it and it went down hill straight away.

    I am very fussy but can recommend the toilets in the park in Cooma one street back from the main drag. Amazingly clean for public toilets. No photo though.

    Looks very much like road between Narabri and Bingara late thursday night. Roo density of the Tumut to Talbingo road but the blighters were hopping every which way. Lots of slalom going on. Plenty of pigs out also which tells you animals getting desparate.

    This is a great place to stop in Bredbo for a caffeine & pie boost.
    No pretentious, entitled wankers or crowds to contend with. Yummy pies made on site, good coffee and not over priced for the tourist.
    Recommended.
