Position / Role: 
Caterer

Lynda happily states that cooking in the Diggers Rest Tavern beats catering on an outward bound bus. The Full Commercial Kitchen in the Original Gold Rush Colony, gives her the scope to cater for all types of groups and occasions.

Examples: 140 primary school students on overnight excursions, through to Private Functions, Classic Country Weddings or Country Music Afternoons with Ploughmans Platters. (Please follow links below for more information on Catering Services at the Colony in Mogo.)

Lynda has spent 30 years cooking for a living, in only 3 positions.  She began with Murrays Coaches, catering both on their extended tours, and on their farm, Burbong. Then for 10 years she ran her own business "Cafe to the Max" in Tin Can Bay in Queensland.

Catering in the Diggers Rest Tavern of The Original Gold Rush Colony in Mogo on the NSW South Coast, means she is closer to her family and 5 grandchildren.
