Nowra:

Nowra Fresh Fish & Chips: (8/10)
Corner Moss Street & Princess Highway, Nowra — (02) 4429 1919

Very fresh fish, because they’re close to the Co-op, and you can sit down to eat for a price that’s cheaper than a lot of Sydney takeaway joints. Highly recommended by the Catholic Bushwalkers.

Kangaroo Valley:

Old Store at Barrengarry: (7/10)
2167 Moss Vale Road, Kangaroo Valley — (02) 4465 1360 / 0405 188 233

With a sign outside that declares “Worlds Best Pies”, it’s pretty hard to drive past. The pies are pretty amazing and well worth stopping for if you’re driving through. The shop is part cafe, part post office, part general store, and has a huge selection of local gourmet products to tempt you with. Open 8.30am to 5.30pm.

Albion Park Rail:

The Oaks Hotel: (9/10)
249 Princes Highway, Albion Park Rail — (02) 4257 1211

Open until 9 on a Sunday, this is our pick of the pubs heading home from the Budawangs. The seafood was of a very high quality and the steak sandwiches were made with some damn juicy steak!

Make a submission to the Good Grub Guide:

This guide is based on the first-hand experiences we’ve had, along with feedback from other bushwalkers, canyoners and outdoor enthusiasts. The more people that provide suggestions, feedback, and personal experiences, the more useful the guide will be for all of us.

When making a submission, think about the factors that make a place particularly convenient following a trip. Is it open reasonably early or late? Is it located close to places you’re likely to drive through? Are the staff friendly and welcoming, particularly when it involves dirty, stinky, outdoors-people? And perhaps most importantly, does it have good food at affordable prices?
