Well worth stopping here for a personalised group tasting. A big range of cheeses to taste and each group is individually catered for. It was very busy when we visited but this place did well to cater for everyone. Ice creams are now offered as well.

The cheese was really yum! It's a free tasting so you can't go wrong really! They have cheese and gelato all made fresh from the cows you see outside so it's different but something you have to do near the great ocean road

We made a U-turn when we saw and passed the sign. A lovely farm feel when you enter the property. It is very Australian. The staff were very kind and informative. We got to taste a lot of the different kinds of cheeses. You can also see cows at the back of the tasting area.

This place is good for either a quick or a slow visit. Staff are friendly and informative. They let you taste lots of cheeses and you can also get a description of the working farm that you can see from the tasting room. They also explain how the cheese is made. A nice friendly cheese tasting place in the country.

A charming family cheese producer that makes excellent cheese and gelato on the premises. We took the complementary cheese tasting, learned about the different cheeses and the process of creating them. After the tasting, we choose our three favourite cheeses and had a savoury cheese plate made up. A perfect afternoon snack with a 5$ glass of wine. Our favourite... More

Yum! Best Brie I`ve ever had. Friendly greeting when you walk in the door, and we were offered tastings of all the varieties of cheese they had to offer! We also stayed for lunch and shared a savoury cheese plate and a sweet cheese plate, and enjoyed the gelato selection as well. Loved it. Definitely worth the detour!
