I never knew that there was so much variety in New Zealand cheeses. Ask to taste any that take your fancy. You will not be disappointed.

Definitely a place for cheese lovers. They let you try the cheese before you buy it. We got NZ cheese, I think it was Parmesan and it tastes good. It is located in a walking distance from the Visitor Center.

New Zealand dairy is (forgive me) cream of the crop, and this little gem tucked away on Montreal street is the perfect showroom for these national treasures! On your way to the Botanic Gardens for a sunny picnic, why not grab a cheese (of your...More

As big cheese fans this was a must do for us visiting Christchurch. We were not disappointed and took home over $70 worth of cheese - oops! Friendly and informative staff happy to let us sample first. Free parking.
