We were expecting more varieties of cheese. They sell honey as well, not only wine and cheese which Quality is good. They have supermarket when you enter this place that sells souvenirs and foods. Not much to see and buy here.

Great selection of cheese to taste and buy (only make cheddar cheese), lots of different jams, chutneys and sauces made locally to taste and buy, wines from the region are also available. Cafe offers a good range of snack food. Pop into the museum also has a great display of cheese making equipment and farming tools

We expected a little more from cheese world to be honest..It is after all touted as a tourist attraction for a number of reasons. (the milkshakes, the museum etc) We were met with fairly cold service in the cafe (Not a smile from anyone in the place) actually felt like we were a burden for ordering their "World Famous" milkshakes....

Actually worth a visit because they always have great cheese on offer and free tasting is never a bad thing.

We went here twice on our recent visit to Warrnambool, both times we had milkshakes. The first the milkshakes were nothing short of absolutely amazing. This prompted us to go back a second time and have lunch another day and while they were absolutely still satisfactory, they'd lost the wow factor we'd had the few days before. They tasted completely... More

We thought this would be a good stop. The staff were very friendly, but the cheese tasting and shop were a bit of a letdown. We were expecting a bit more of a cheese making demonstration. I did enjoy looking at their museum.

Factory is actually on the other side of the road, guests are taken into a shop and deli where if you choose to taste cheese, you need to try and grab a staff members and ask to do so. The outside shed which is loosely a museum is full of relics of farmlife and all dusty-really not that interesting.

If you LOVE milkshakes, this is a must. If you LOVE coffee milkshakes, this is a must. Every year for the past almost eight years we have done the Great Ocean Road and beyond and this is a must. We had a shake for breakfast yesterday. Yummy!!!!

Very helpful staff who were very knowledgeable and proactive. Good variety of hard and soft cheeses for sale at reasonable rates. Didn't try the wine selection but plenty on hand and prices looked good to. Also didn't eat at cafe, so can't comment. Also stop in at the free museum, some of the old equipment I remember from my childhood
