Pretty much everywhere.

 

Now my favourite is Harry's Cafe de Wheels (in the commercial range) and there's one at Haymarket, or the original location at woolloomooloo on the waterfront.

 

Next I'd probably go a Mrs Mac's at pretty much any 7-11 etc or a Garlo's

Are you going on a cruise? Which ship? Some Princess ships serve the real Aussie meat pies (Mrs Mac brand) at the grill overlooking the pool.

You cannot fail to find a meat pie in any Australia city within 200 metres of where you are standing - we cannot stand to be too far from one of our favourite, cheap and tasty pies. Don't forget to ask for the sauce (ketchup for our USA friends}

Yep and some of the small places make the very best. A little bakery in Tasmania make one of the best I've ever had, and believe me I've had a few, but it's easier for a local to find a good one than a visitor that's why I try to suggest a few that are pretty easy to find.

And wasn't I a happy little camper when I found out about that before our Circumnavigation. Was worried about going 34 days without a dogs eye with dead horse.

You need to have a Harry's with the works. I prefer the veggie pie but with the mash potatoes, peas and gravy on top.

Watched a few cruiseships leaving Newcastle, parked at Horseshoe Beach with a Harry's for dinner!

In South east Queensland, my vote goes to Yatala pies, half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Yep they're another good one.

 

Fredo's just out of Kempsey are also great.

Indeed, had those and Fredos on my many journeys to Northern NSW and Qld, to visit relos. Before Coeliac hit me and now no real pies, just GF rubbish.:(:loudcry:

 

Goldsteins in Qld, many branches also made a good dogs eye.:')

Agree that Goldsteins on the Gold Coast make good pies.

 

It is funny how everyone in my family stops at a particular specialty pie shop en route to Coffs Harbour. Yet we can't remember the name of the town on the river, nor the shop, but we all know where to stop for a great pie. There are little pie shops like that all over Australia, who do a good business on the strength of their pies.

Mrs Mac's? Yuk. Avoid at all costs. Go for a Harry's.

Like Fredos it's not accessible by cruise ship - a long, long way from the sea in fact - but Fran at Larrimah in the NT used to make the best steak and kidney pie you'd ever tasted. She was a retired shearer's cook and the pies were real deep dish and didn't even need tom diddle.

A shearer's cook would know how to make a good steak and kid, but I'd still want dead horse.

One of our family favourites was steak and kidney pie. When one of my sons was around 10 or so, he told me I would make a lot of money if I sold my steak and kidney pies. Don't you love what kids say???? :D

Could have been a millionaire.....Don't you wish you'd listened. :eek::eek::eek:

A good steak and kid is as hard as hen's teeth to find these days and Mr Gut, if it's any good you just don't need tom diddle.

Now I really feel like eating a good meat pie and tomato sauce. Can't go past a good shepherds pie with mashed potato on top.

IMO, Vili's pies are the best commercially made pies there are, lots of choice too. Especially the Hungarian Goulash pie.

A couple of nice spots in Tassie for a pie, a few shops still using wood fired ovens too which tend to produce a good pie.

Vili's aren't bad just not stocked many places around me.

Originally just an Adelaide company but quickly expanded across SA as the quality was so good and their business expanded to the demand. Gabriel Gateau then was commissioned to design the gourmet range of pies and it just went boom. They then started going across Australia with their products being stocked in BPs café type stations and also in some IGA stores.

Not sure if they are still in the stores though.

Most non franchise bakeries make awesome pies,

There is one up in Port Douglas that does the varieties like Crocodile, Barramundi and Kangaroo which are all very very nice.

Used to have them frequently when visiting Adelaide, Mrs Gut says maybe Harry's for lunch today.

My local bakery makes awesome pies so if you're ever in Lane Cove look for Sam the Cakeman.

Not seen them. Woolworths stock Jase's frozen meat pies and sausage rolls, not bad, but like all GF food, rip off price.:evilsmile:

They're a small chain, started in Coffs I think, lucky we have one in Abermain, just near Cessnock as it's one thing she really misses.

While we are talking pies, is Harry's anywhere within walking distance from circular quay cruise terminal. If so, might go for a feed.

When we cruised aboard Fair Princess in 2000 there was a 'Harry's De Waves' stall on promenade deck aft, sampled a few pies and peas during the 11 days.:cool:

Someone reported that a shop near the Ferry Terminal sells them.

 

Otherwise Haymarket is a few Kms up the road or around at Darling Harbour
