Last week, Mornington Shire Council ordered in over four hundred loafs of bread, which were flown from a Karumba bakery to Mornington Island.

The bread ovens at the local bakery broke down two weeks ago but, due to the island’s remote location, council has been unable to order in the necessary parts of its repair.

The only bread sold on the island is made at the council-operated bakery which generally bakes fresh, preservative free bread daily that is then available for sale through the Gununamanda Store.

In the mean time, some of the 1500 residents and visitors have resorted to cooking tasty damper with lashings of honey or butter.

A big thank you to Regional Express Airlines, who brought over 160 kgs of bread to Gununa free of charge.
