    FJ Holden Cafe, Hughenden

    October 8, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    From the first moment you hear about the FJ Holden Cafe, you are curious. As you walk in the fist thing you see is a Golden Fleece petrol bowser, synonymous with the era of the great FJ. The next thing you notice is the front cut of an actual FJ. Then you notice all sorts of interesting items including quite a bit of Elvis memoebilia.

    The rear end of a monaro made into a lounge chair is quite unusual but in here would not raise a brow. Many models are safely displayed in cases and the walls are packed with info and curios. An old jukebox on display was imported from the USA. Even more curious is that it played 78rpm records.

    The Cafe is owned by the local people, the Holdens. FJ & JA Holden in fact. Francis and Jan have brought a wonderful and quirky idea to life.

    It doesn't end there though. This is a real cafe and the coffee and food is excellent. If we are ever in Hughenden, this is a must do stop.
