Tell me about Coles Supermarkets

Jump to last reply

We will be in Australia Dec 6-Jan 4. We spend a great deal of our time birdwatching and visiting parks and such. We usually don't like to spend a lot of time stopping for breakfast and lunch when we do this in the US, so will have a cooler with some fruit, maybe some sandwich stuff, and beverages.

I have found a soft-side cooler that looks just like a soft briefcase so will be using it as a carryon, and then when we arrive, we will have our cooler! (or, is it esky?) So I am prepared there.

Our first stop is in Brisbane, and we will be driving first to Aaronlee Retreat which is just past Mt Tamborine and near Canungra. I have located a Coles Supermarket on the Tamborine Oxenford road. It seems like this may be a fairly big Australian chain grocery? Will this be a good place for our first stockup?

Side note, would they have things like throwaway phones? I am thinking it may be an idea to get a throwaway for the four weeks there for domestic calls. For my phone I can get an int'l package that will get me 99C a minute, but that is still pretty high for calls.
