The Loddon Valley’s bakeries are well worth travelling for. In fact you’d be hard-pressed to find better. Traditionally a bakery is the heart beat of a country town and that’s certainly the case here, where the bakers rise before the sun.


Find old-fashioned Cornish pasties the way the miners used to make them, gourmet pies boasting blue ribbon prizes, sweet treats to swoon over and artisan breads made from locally-milled flour. The flour mill by the Loddon River has been serving the region and beyond for over 130 years. It’s the only functional water-driven mill in the southern hemisphere.


Eat-in for friendly service or take away your bakery fare to enjoy by one of the region’s waterways. Pack your picnic for a day’s prospecting. An egg and bacon pie bought at sunrise makes a great companion for a morning’s fishing.

COVID-19 UPDATE: There are new restrictions in Victoria. For more information on the current restrictions please click here. Due to these restrictions it is advised you contact the businesses directly in the case of temporary opening hours or density limits.
