Where are Australia's best bakeries?

Check out the list below and see what you think!

JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY: MELBOURNE, VIC

Facing stfiff competition in the coffee capital, Dolcetti in West Melbourne came up trumps, according to Discovery Parks, for its Sicilian treats including traditional biscuits, cheesecakes, cannolis, sugar-dusted pastries and grapefruit amaretti.

GREAT OCEAN ROAD: GEELONG, VIC

Is Geelong offocially on the Great Ocean Road? The Rolling Pin Pies and Cakes sure hopes so, as it's been named the best bakery in the whole region! "Taking titles for Australia's Best Gourmet Pie in 2016 and Australia's Best Pie in 2013, The Rolling Pin has the pie down to an art form" Discovery Parks says. Don't forget to try their award-winning Country Lamb and Rosemary Pie!

DISCOVER TASMANIA: HOBART, TAS

In a city better known for its seafood than its sweets, the European Daci & Daci Bakers takes the cake. Discovery Parks lists its fresh fig & walnut sourdough, belgian chocolate cake and moroccan lamb sausage rolls as must-haves!

JINDABYNE, NSW

Trader Joe's Garage - Cafe is listed as the best place to warm up in the snowy High Country, with the 'best toasties and coffee' in Jindabyne as well as double-cheeseburgers and wood-fired pizzas after a day on the slopes.

MURRAY RIVER ESCAPE: ECHUCA-MOAMA, NSW/VIC

The Moama Bakery on the Vic/NSW border town of Echuca-Moama is famous for its Ned Kelly Pie and that, coupled with the fact that there's three outlets spread around town, is what elevates it to the top of the pile in the Murray region.

PERTH & THE GREAT SOUTH: SWAN VALLEY, WA

A French patisserie in a wine-growing region? That's Maison Saint-Honore in Perth's Swan Valley. Discovery Parks maintains the macarons will make your "heart swoon" - so don't forget to sample the salted caramel version. 

WARLU WAY: KARRATHA, WA

Karratha's Bakers Delight franchise takes the cake in the Pilbara with family-friendly favourites such as cheese rolls and chocolate finger buns.
