About Waacks Bakeries


Western Victoria’s Greatest Bakery


Rob & Sharon have been looking for a business for a long time, one that they could do together as a family.  On the 29th February 2016 they purchased Western Victoria’s Greatest Bakery.  Coming from Ballarat (not too far away) they are now integrating there life into regional Victoria’s towns of Stawell, Ararat & Horsham.

They will continue to produce the delicious quality products and friendly service with some new products and idea’s on the way.

In 1995 Chris Waack read a one line advertisement in the Weekly Times which read “Bakery for sale suit family”. Chris had a young family and wanted a bakery so it seemed to fit. Many years later it has grown into the magnificent family owned local bakery which is Waack’s Bakery. Waack’s Bakery has built a reputation on quality products, exceptional service and having a bit of fun on the way.

In 1999 they expanded into Ararat establishing an icon bakery in the middle of the main street. The bakery originally small is now 3 shops wide and seats over 100 people. The bakery is a wonderful spot to grab a bite to eat with focaccias, vol-au-vents, lasagna and who could forget the Chicken and Leek Pies, Lamb Shank in Red Wine Pies or one of our silver medal steak pies.

Then in 2006 they took the opportunity to expand into Horsham by purchasing a small bakery on the corner of Firebrace St and Roberts Place. This bakery provides a spot for shoppers and local workers to enjoy a lovely cup of coffee or a bite of lunch.

Waack’s Bakery is built on quality and service, so it is important Waack’s maintains and exceeds these standards at all times. Waack’s bakery pride themselves on being involved in local communities.

So go on treat yourself and have a cup of coffee, as well as Australia’s Best Hot Cross Bun.
