Each of the venues offer terrace seating. Their inviting interiors feature rustic-chic décor, including wood benches and hand-crafted lampshades fashioned from corrugated, rusted iron. The warm, earthy colours invoke the red desert sands and blue of the southern sky. You will not find clichés, such as boomerangs or Aboriginal art. However, Australian artists do exhibit their work at Drovers Dog. You might also catch a gig by a visiting singer-songwriter. “We came up with the idea in 2012. Celebrating quality, Aussie-style brunch, lunch, dinner and a wide selection of Australian beers, and wines”, says Simon O’Connor, one of the three partners behind Drovers Dog.
