Now that's a mate.

An Australian woman from a town with no KFC has made the most of a weekend trip, bringing back $300 worth of nuggets, wings and potato and gravy.

Jodie Gandolfo lives in Port Hedland, Western Australia, and was going 200km away for the weekend to Karratha, reports WA Today.

'I was travelling to Karratha for an appointment and decided to make a weekend out of it' she told the paper.

Her friends placed orders, and phoned the Karratha store on Saturday. On Sunday, she picked up the mammoth feast.

"The Karratha KFC is used to us Hedlanders ordering up big, [and] the manager was great about it," said Ms Gandolfo.

She packed the food into thermal bags to keep it warm on the trip home.

"Unless you live in a town like Hedland you wouldn't understand," she told WA Today.
