On Australia Day, the team from The Wallaby Hotel have offered free transfers between the pub and the GC Hinterland Heritage Museum Inc. for the ceremony and activities being held there that day. There’s always a bit of congestion over at the museum on #AustraliaDay and parking is tough to come by. The Wallaby have a great lunch on and other afternoon entertainment.
