If you get a chance stop in the Croc bar for a fun time with the locals. And of course get a photo with the croc. People very friendly. Had the XXXX Gold beer on draft and loved it. The Grand Hotel is an historic place near the big shopping mall. Good place to drop off hubby while you shop.

Nice old ran down pub with regulars. Big decks outside. Menu is amazing; most meals $10. We had steaks, calamari, pizzas & snitz, all really great. Nice to sit outside on the weekend and listen to the live bands.
