    Indeed there is a bbq area, but you should purchase your meat on the premises if you wish to use it. You can try kangaroo and gator if you wish... A buffet, tray and silverware are part of the deal

    Do you really need breakfast at 4.30am, get it when you get back Check your return if its for the sunrise tour you will have time. When you have paid so much do you really want to buy breakfast again.
