Search is on for Australia’s biggest truck stop steak


Most of our champion truckies down under enjoy munching on a big juicy steak or at least that is the feedback Spy received from many of them and from roadhouse staff.

However, we all know that the cost of meat has risen dramatically in the current economic climate so finding a place that provides value for money when you order a ‘roadhouse rump’ is always on the radar.

Spy has commenced a search to find out which roadhouse serves up the biggest, best, and most value-for-money steaks.

Having just been on a trip around Queensland I will gladly nominate the Gold Nugget Truck Stop at Gympie, where I purchased a rump steak with chips and salad for a reasonable $22.

Several tables nearby had meals delivered by staff and I noted with curiosity that many had ordered ‘half rumps’.

But when mine arrived it was soon evident why. My full rump covered an entire plate and there was no way I could get through it all, even though I have a huge appetite.

That was also the first time I had ever been to the Gold Nugget where lots of truckies were parked out the back.

We need nominations from truckies regarding their biggest steaks.
