Relive Your 80's Childhood At The BBC

by reread (follow)
Samboy chips, bare feet and mummy having a shandy in the sun! The Bardon Bowls Club has recently gone from a daggy little bowls club with pokies and a few barflys to a family-friendly weekend 'drinky-poo' venue!



Head down to the BBC on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday arvo and the place is rife with toddlers and dads in cargo shorts. It's a great place to let your kids run wild whilst you have a chat and order food from the food trucks - yes food trucks!



If you can remember Bowie as The Goblin King and you know that Alf eats cats - then it's safe to say that you may just find a little bit of your magical 80's childhood on these uneven greens. With cheap beverages, BBQ flavour Samboy chips behind the counter and kids redefining the word 'berko', this place is pure 'weekend nostalgia' - but with waaaaaay more Audi 4x4s in the carpark.

The club has two bowling greens - one is basically a huge 'kid pit' for tricycles, diggers, soccer balls and excessive amounts of running. The other is fairly well maintained and offers a place for tipsy 20-somethings to try their hand at the old-timey sport of 'bowls'.

Also, if you're there while it's still light, the kids can check out the creek that runs alongside the club. We have found turtles, fish, tadpoles and ducks!
