Since opening, 🪃 Boomerangs has become very popular among locals and visitors alike and for very good reason. The restaurants slogan says …

After our visit and amazing dinner a few seasons ago, we can’t wait for a return visit!

An Australian Flair On Vancouver Island

Who would think that one would run into an Australian themed restaurant with creative {Native Australian} dishes on an island in 🍂 British Columbia, Canada? ❓

Well to our pleasant surprise, there is just that!

Café Owners

One of the owners of this family owned and operated restaurant happens to have – Australian roots!

Husband and wife owners {Darren and Laura}, have an extensive restaurant background and Darren happens to have grown up in Sydney, Australia.

With two creative minds, they came up with a wonderful plan to bring a bit of Australia to Port Alberni, with a little taste of “Down Under” added to their menu.

For such a lovely casual dining establishment, the menu is absolutely huge!

There’s a wide variety of tempting selections to choose from, including a few authentic Australian dishes as well. For example, how about trying;

Homemade Authentic “Aussie” Chicko Rolls as a starter?

These rolls are filled with lamb and vegetables all wrapped in a crepe and dipped in batter. Did you know, the Chiko Roll is a favorite Australian appetizer snack?

Perhaps an Emu Burger for something completely out of the ordinary!  

Emu’s are native to Australia and also happen to be the countries national bird. Another Aussie favorite may tempt you and that would be their famous 🦘 Kangaroo Burger!

From fresh soups and salads to main courses including; fresh fish selections, chicken, beef and pasta, this extensive menu is certain to have something for even the fussiest eater!

Oh by the way, when you see Chook on the menu, it’s an Aussie slang word for 🐔 “chicken.”
