Pasties were also popular for lunches in the gold mines of Bendigo. We did a tour there once that included an underground trip into the mine and that was where I first learnt that the thick crusty edge of the pastie was designed as a "handle" and wasn't eaten so that they didn't ingest substances from their hands.

Cornish miners came to Australia to make their fortunes in the gold rush and there were many in the Ballarat and Bendigo gold fields.  From the 1840s, many went to South Australia to the Moonta area and worked in the copper mines. There is a large Cornish Festival held biennially in the area.

The miners often had their pets with them in the mines , hence the popularity of Corndogs in SA.
