A lovely idea but a place where the customer does a lot of waiting... waiting in queue to order because there's no table service, waiting for someone to be able to buy chocolates from, waiting for the food that is ordered to arrive. And the menu and coffee isn't very good at all. Some more thought and investment into the... More

We dropped in and our main focus was the cheese. We bought marinated feta and wish we had bought more. We also bought cheese in wax.... Vintage, peppercorn and chive. It is awesome. Do go if you have the chance.

The dairy was a nice little stop. We had a look at the milking and animals which was free to see. We got a few little cheeses from the shop which were pretty standard pricing for this sort of place.

They have an excellent macadamia cheese, not cheap but so good. I also liked their ginger yoghurt, a flavour in yoghurt I have not tried before. This was very creamy and tasty too.

We stopped here to sample some of the interesting 'homemade' cheeses produced on site. The macadamia cheese was a favourite. Being an indulgent holiday, we also sampled the various chocolates - absolutely delicious, some of the best I've tasted.

It was a rainy day on the coast, so we decided to drive to Gallo Dairyland for lunch and to see the Atherton Tableland on the way. It made for an enjoyable 5 hour outing from the Cairns area. At the Dairyland, you can watch through a window as they make cheese and read some provided information. We didn't bother... More

This place offers not much to see. You can watch how the milk cows are giving milk. You can watch someone ( if you are lucky) making cheese we could only watch how equipment was cleaned. Cheese was mediocre chocolate ok.

This place is absolutely tragic. Scones came with jam from a packet and still in packet-those little Kraft ones you get at cheap motels for breakfast. The coffee was pod coffee for $4. The baby animal farm was disgraceful. Calves lying in their own poo on thick metal grid. The chicken coop didn't look like it had ever been cleaned... More
