Robertson Pie Shop, Robertson, NSW

If you're heading from Sydney to Kangaroo Valley, why not call in at the Robertson pie shop? A family-run business that's been trading for 37 years will deliver you a slice of pie - and a slice of local history, too.

Erldunda Roadhouse, NT

Enjoy the beautiful scenery at this motel/caravan park in the Northern Territory. The red dirt and clear night skies make the Erldunda roadhouse some of the most highly-sought after accommodation in Ayers Rock.

Miami Bakehouse, Forrest Hwy, WA

Travelling in or out of Perth? The Miami Bakehouse is a must for all things freshly-baked. Indulge in a creamy, coffee eclair or a dense caramel slice before hitting the road again.
