A contrast to recent runs, this was only a 2.5km jog through the streets of Bowral to Stones Patisserie just off Bong Bong St. A few extra runners joined in the fun run today, Erin and our trusty side-kick Snoopy. A Queens Birthday crowd resulted in a decent line-up for their well renowned and delicious pies. With plenty of outdoor and indoor seating Stone’s Patisserie is a good choice when looking to stay a while for lunch. Plenty of parking is nearby at the Coles carpark. Not needed if you are running of course!
- Distance: 2.5km
- Pie Time: 0:15
In honour of the Queen, we went a little high-brow today with a Lamb, Potato and Lemongrass Pie. Takeaway was available and we sat in a nearby park to enjoy it with our hound in tow.
- Pies: Lamb, Potato & Lemongrass.
- Pastry: The pastry kept up with the high Southern Pieland standards we’d come to expect, respect and enjoy.
- Filling: Interesting flavour, the lemongrass was quite prominent and likely, for us, a lesson in being hasty with the sauce. This threw the flavours out a bit. So hold the sauce next time.
- Cost: $7.50
- Sauce tax: None! Not one but two sauce sachets included free of charge.
Southern Highlands Pie Trail Run
The Southern ‘Pielands’ Trail Run went for the month of June. As ambassadors for ‘Pie time’ we ran to all of the 26 bakeries on the official Pie Trail to see what they had to offer. See our reviews of all 26 bakeries, their stories and their pies.

Ever since venturing out the back gate into the bush as a kid, I've had a curiosity to escape and explore as often as I could. It's fair to say that my curiosity has continued to grow instead of fade as the years go on. It eventually came time to turn a few scribbled notes into some legible stories and travel tips for anyone with a similar curiosity as me.
