"Welcome to Sydney's Original Sourdough Bakery"

Who We Are

Australian Family Owned & Operated.

In the summer of 1989 the Cummings family struck culinary gold discovering the virtues of the time honoured artisan sourdough techniques in the French Alps and later in the Pacific north west of the America’s.

“We knew the Australian palate would fall in love with these beautiful sourdough breads” so the Bowan Island story was born.

Pioneering artisan sourdough baking in Australia over 25 years ago, Bowan Island  continues to produce their delicious artisan breads for all to enjoy.

Today Bowan Island nourishes its sourdough breads with their unique 80 year old starter, creating our Artisan Sourdough Collection.
