Good ‘Vibe’ at WA roadhouse

Several truck drivers have contacted Spy singing the praises of the Vibe Roadhouse at the historical WA town of Coolgardie.

Three of them were WA drivers whilst another four are from interstate and stop off there when delivering in the region.

“They serve great food, there is plenty of parking next door in a road train assembly area. The shower was temporarily unavailable the day I was there but there are good clean public showers at the assembly area,” one driver told me.

It is open from 5am to 8pm and another driver said the staff were very friendly overall.

Coolgardie is 558km east of Perth and has a population of approximately 850.

Although Coolgardie is now known to most Western Australians as a tourist town and a mining ghost town, it was once the third largest town in state (after Perth and Fremantle).

One feature in Coolgardie is wide streets which I am told were created in the early days so horses and drays could turn around.
