This is a famous corn beef and white sauce pie from Ed’s Beach Bakery at Rainbow Beach. So famous, in fact it was recently listed as No. 1 for Top Ten Pies around Australia, by Creek to Coast.
It just happens to be my favourite pie, at our local bakery. I don’t eat a pie very often – when I do have a urge for one, this is where I go!
Here’s comments from other travellers, via our Facebook page. Let us know if you have a favourite, too! We need a few from WA, NT and VIC! Thanks everyone for sharing your favourites.

Jetty Road Bakehouse in Wallaroo, SA does THE BEST chicken and leek pie.
The most delicious pies are at Blinman in the Flinders Ranges.
Hayden’s Pies are delicious, located on the highway in Ulladulla.

Local’s tip: If you do try a pie from Ed’s Beach Bakery in Rainbow Beach – ask them for a frozen family pie. They are very economical and delicious – make sure you have an oven!
