1970s

When its wheels went missing one night, local wags coined the nickname ‘Café de Axle.’ Harry operated the caravan for a further 30 years before selling the business to Alex Kuronya in 1975.

It was perhaps Harry’s finest moment in 1978, when Rear Admiral David Martin – over a pie and glass of Champagne – commissioned the caravan as “HMAS Harry’s”.

In 1974, chicken king, Colonel Sanders, stopped at Harry’s and enjoyed the food so much that he ate three ‘pies and peas’ while leaning on his walking stick in front of the caravan.

Elton John has also been a visitor to Harry’s over the years and held a press conference from inside Harry’s during the 1970’s.
