Where's the best service centre?

A ROAD transport identity who has visited many roadhouses in the past few years reckons the Aussie ones are equal or even better on average than many in England.

The middle aged lad sent Spy a pic of a Pom service centre he stopped off at in Chesire County.

"You could get petrol and lots of different food at various shops there. Like the service centres in parts of Victoria, NSW and WA here," he said.

His all time favourite Down Under is the Epping Forest Roadhouse beside the Heritage Hwy between Launceston and Hobart in Tasmania.

"The food was great and I also got to see the Truckies Memorial at one side of it," he said.

He said parts of the drive along the route which is also known as the Midlands Hwy in the Apple Isle resembled parts of the Mother Country.
