    The absolute best burger is at Woodburn on the Pacific Hwy( just south of Ballina/north of Maclean)...its a yellow painted ,24hr place on the highway , opposite the river park.....We've eaten a burger there every year for at least 6 and they are fantastic....The meat is seasoned, and if you want eggs, pineapple etc ask for the "woodburn burger with the lot"!My kids( born and raised in LA)make sure we indulge every trip.

      In July, I had an amazing "burger with the lot" in a very nondescript lunch joint on the main drag in Mareeba (Atherton Tablelands). I have no idea what Australia's best burger is, but if you ask me, you can't do better than a burger in a cattle town--during the Mareeba Rodeo, no less. This one had absolutely everything on it, and somehow, my 110-lb self managed to demolish it in about eight minutes flat.

                  When I first had this, I was so blown away that I wrote down all the ingredients:

                  Hamburger, cheese, bacon, a fried egg, beet slices, lettuce, tomato, and fried onions. You could get either ketchup (called tomato sauce in Australia) or barbecue sauce as a condiment. I washed that all down with a Bundaberg ginger beer and it was the greatest chow ever! I can't believe I managed to finish it, much less fit it into my mouth at all!

                      Yes, the sliced kind. It was criminally tasty.

                      Totally agreed. Me and my friend went an 4 hour return bus ride for it. TOTALLY WORTH IT!

                        Yeah, the burger with the lot was a surprise. There was a place in Airlie Beach where they also put a pork chop on it. I about fell out of my chair laughing.

                              James, I am really glad they are still selling them!!

                              The Igloo was for sale last year and there was talk that the new owners were not going to continue the tradition!!!

                              Kudos to you for giving it a go!!!!
