Is there anything more tempting than the smell of freshly baked bread? Maybe a sneaky sausage roll at morning tea, or cheeky caramel or vanilla slice in the afternoon? Country bakeries are the cornerstone of the community, dishing up tasty treats to all-comers.

If you rate a region by the quality of its baked goods then you’ll struggle to find a finer place than the Central Goldfields. If wrapping fresh local produce in the loving arms of golden pastry is your idea of nirvana then look no further. This is heaven.
