    Outback Pioneer was our ninth stop of our around Australia trip. We stayed two nights. For $300 a night I expected a little bit more. Be careful with chargebacks from the restaurants. Make sure you sign the dockets and get a receipt.

    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
