Our Story

My first recollection of baking on my own was when I was about 11 yrs old. My mum was a nurse at Townsville General Hospital, working in the men’s surgical unit. Many of her patients would awake during the night and she’d make them a cuppa and something to eat. I’d always enjoyed baking with my grandmother and the opportunity to bake at home while mum was working so now I had a captive audience -- patients.  I made mini apple pies that mum would take to work. From there I began making other sweet treats. As a teenager with both parents working I would help more with the meals and learned to make delights such as cheesecake, pavlova, lamingtons, pies, and the usual scones, cupcakes, etc. I collected recipes from magazines and was often given recipe books for Christmas and birthday gifts. I enjoyed the kitchen.

Over the years I tried my hand at baking various things including breads. I love bread and enjoy the challenge of creating a tasty loaf that’s still good a couple days after baking. In addition to baking and cooking, I enjoy catering and have catered for friends, family, and businesses/groups for over 20 years, culminating in the opening of  Boomerang Bakery on April 15, 2010,

Boomerang Bakery is a community bakery  with a mission. The Boomerang offers quality baked goods at affordable prices. We are happy to accept FoodShare cards, thus providing one more place for folks finding themselves in difficult economic times to purchase healthy bakery products. What products we are unable to repurpose into other baked goods, we donate to local organizations and food pantries.  All monetary tips are donated to Jeremiah’s Hope, an organization founded by my son, Andrew Kelly, to serve the orphans of Ukraine.

And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.'” (Luke 4:4) Here at the Boomerang, bread is our staple product but a love for God and His children sustains us. Our gift to the community is to be a community bakery where the hungry can come for bread and for kindness, a warm smile, encouragement, and to see God’s witness each and every day.

May He bless your walk and if you find yourself hungry, please stop in to the Boomerang.
