There are few aromas that can rival a warm, freshly baked loaf of bread or buttery croissant in the morning. Luckily for us, our parks are just minutes away from some of the best bakeries Australia has to offer with delicious artisan sourdoughs, flaky croissants, epic cakes and delicate pastries on the daily.
And because we love all the baked goods (remember holiday calories don’t count), we’ve compiled a list of the top five bakeries whilst holidaying at Ingenia Holidays.
South Coast NSW
Milton: The Heritage Bakery
Located in one of Milton’s oldest buildings, The Heritage Bakery has our vote for the best-baked goods spot in town. While there are many highlights on offer, it’s their traditional sourdough loaves made onsite take 36 hours to make and are well worth the wait.
Team favourite: Apple & Currant Sourdough
Good to know: 15-minute drive from Ingenia Holidays Lake Conjola
Central Coast NSW
Budgewoi: Budgewoi Bakehouse
It’s a modest country gourmet pie shop that does traditional pies well but go here for a jazzed-up pie flavour you’ve never seen before.
Team favourite: Visit on a Thursday for $1 Cream Buns
Good to know: 17-minute drive from Ingenia Holidays Lake Macquarie
Chinderah: Cubby Bakehouse
Nestled right on the Tweed River in Chinderah, Cubby Bakehouse specialises in traditional French crusty baguettes. Baked in fresh batches all day long using only the best French flour, you’re guaranteed to get the tastiest, flakiest and crunchiest pastries every single visit.
Team favourite: The caramel cookie is drool worthy!
Good to know: 5-minute drive from Ingenia Holidays Kingscliff
Noosaville: Rick’s Artisan Pies and Sourdough
Inspired by the bakeries of Paris, the father and son team at Rick’s Artisan Pies & Sourdough are serving up all classics with a twist. Fancy a gourmet pie or specially baked sourdough?
