Big Blue River Meats 22 Gould Street, Russell Lea, New South Wales, Australia

This meat depot is open Saturdays and Sundays only but is excellent value for money. Their prices are lower then the supermarkets on special. Most of the meat is packaged in bulk but they also cut to order. When I went a few weeks ago lamb cutlets were around $17 a kilo compared to $29 at Coles and spring lambs legs for $6.49kg.

Be prepared to buy in bulk, I found a tray of 22 NY Steaks for just under $20. I have a very large freezer so am able to get at least 3 months' worth of meat from one shopping trip! I spent less then $100 and bought some things like cutlets which I normally think are too expensive, but came home with what I worked out to be over $250 worth of meat if I had bought it at the supermarket on special!
