The Pie in the Sky is a Melbourne icon and a great meeting point for visitors to the Royal Melbourne Show, but do you know what makes the 'Pie' so iconic?
The famous Pie in the Sky has stood at Melbourne Showgrounds since 1977 and was initially built as advertising for Four 'n' Twenty pies. The cultural icon has now stood for the living memory of two generations of Victorians and was heritage listed in 1999.
Australia's largest pie maker, Four 'n' Twenty, had humble beginnings in Bendigo, but moved to Melbourne Showgrounds in 1953 when demand for the delicious pies increased.
The factory may no longer be located in Ascot Vale, but the Pie in the Sky lives on as a constant reminder of the pie's history and is now home to the main Information Booth at the Royal Melbourne Show.
If you're looking for the perfect meeting point at the Show, tell your friends and family to 'meet you at the Pie'.
