Pastry lovers are licking their lips in anticipation as Australia's home of pies, the NSW Southern Highlands, readies for an event like no other.
Throughout June, the region will host Pie Time, a series of mouth-watering pie themed events, tours and activities, including hundreds of ways to enjoy our national food..
This year the event is going back to where it all began, The Pie Trail, showcasing the Southern Pielands through its towns and villages as visitors weed their way through the region in search of a perfect pastry.
Returning promotions include Pies and Pinot and Pies On A Plate, an opportunity to visit local bakers and creators who make the most mouth-watering pies in the land.
Pies to wrap your laughing gear around include:
- Creamy Fish Pie
- Coral Trout, Tarragon & Fennel Pie
- Hungarian Goulash Pie
- Duck & Pinot Pie
- Barramundi & Fennel Pie
- Spanakopita Greek Pie
- Pear Pie
Fun events will include the Great Pie Hunt and a photo with The BIG PIE (no relation to the Big Potato down the road in Robertson).
Wingecarribee Shire Council general manager Lisa Miscamble said: "With domestic tourism back on the table, we're encouraging everyone to come to our region and rediscover their favourite pie makers and bakers.
"We have lots of activities and activations stuffed into a 30-day celebration of the great Australian pie,"
"We're looking forward to being able to guide visitors around our glorious region, along The Pie Trail as we see holiday makers here more than ever this year. They'll get to visit local bakers, makers and artisan creators who make the most mouth-watering pies in the land."
