What a disappointment. I stopped here as part of my Great Ocean Road Trip and was met with silence. Eventually finding someone, I asked about the cheese tasting and was told abruptly come back in an hour. The only cheese on display was tasty cheese cut in cubes which looked uninviting. The woman I spoke with seemed uninterested and just... More

We made a special trip out to the cheese factory. There was a gift shop selling the usual mugs and t towels. The cheese tasting room was a little disappointing. It was help - yourself to cubes of 5 local cheeses. And some rhubarb dishes. I've been to better cheese tasting rooms where someone with knowledge of the different cheeses... More

Stopped in here for a coffee on a rainy Wednesday driving along the GOR and stayed for over two hours. The cheeses were very tasty to sample and the gift shop was well stocked and with reasonable pricing. The winery was a surprise as the prices seemed to be a lot lower than anywhere else for the same good products.... More

Our second visit there now just to have an ice cream. Upon both visits when you are ordering it feels awkward- no one knows the price of the ice cream that you've purchased and the scoop you are given is not what I would of wanted to pay for.

Not a lot of food varieties to select from but they do make super milkshakes with lots of flavours to choose from.

Even though it's part of a cheese making enterprise, this isn't the best part. The cheese tasting experience is underwhelming (the cheese is good) but nothing more than some of their products pre-cut into cubes and served on platter. The shop and assortment of gourmet products was good, but essentially just a shop. The best part though, was the museum... More
