Big Bad John's
Easily missed from the outside because of the regulars piling into the much larger but fairly generic Sticky Wicket pub adjoining it,...
Opposite the info centre, Sam’s is the perfect spot for a coffee or bottle of beer and a sandwich big enough to feed two.
Lonely Planet review
The most fun your wide-eyed kids will have in Victoria without even realizing it's educational, step inside the bright-painted main room for a cornucopia of show-and-tell insect encounters. The excellent guides handle and talk about critters like frog beetles, dragon-headed crickets and the disturbingly large three-horned scarab beetles, before releasing their audience (not the insects) into the gift shop.
