Darren had his birthday while we were up there so we had a ride on a paddle steamer boat in the morning and a roast dinner at the resort that night. The roast dinner was an event holiday makers can pay for to the resort and a two course meal is provided. Twelve people attended and we had fun getting to know all the others on our table.
As you can imagine, it's a little hard to be thrifty when on holidays but we did manage to save some money.
* We used our thermos for morning and afternoon teas. This is such a simple task that saves so much money.
* Used our saved Flybuys dollars to buy a few holiday groceries for our meals.
* I took a frozen chop suey and rice for dinner one night.
* Space was limited in the car but I did manage to pack cranberry hootycreek biscuits, muesli bars, fruit, water bottles, rolls for lunch on the way up, tea bags, sugar and chocolate.
