The small town of Balranald, approximately 1,000 inhabitants, lies in the west of New South Wales and is pretty much half way between Sydney and Adelaide, in South Australia.

As I only stop here for lunch, etc en route to Adelaide or back to Canberra (where I live) I have very little content on it to add to my blog at present. One day I must explore the town and the area around it further as there are some parks, etc that tickle my interest.


if, perchance, you do pass through and be in need of something to eat I recommend a stop at the Bakery. I have been stopping here annually for years now. Located on the main street, you cannot miss it.

2While not in itself warranting a trip from either, this is a great lunch stop about 600km from Adelaide and 800km from Sydney. Perfect too for a morning or afternoon tea stop.

It offers homemade bread and cake and very good coffee to boot. Award winning pies are also on the menu and their apple slice is to die for :-).

A delicious filled baguette and coffee will cost you around A$10 – extra for the apple slice!

When I passed through Balranald in January 2014 I noticed that another rather nice looking cafe had opened next door to the bakery. While I resisted the temptation to switch allegiences in 2015 I gave Cafe Cassaro (separate review) a go in December 2016 and now I am torn as to which one is better and will get my custom when I next visit….. decisions, decisions!
