The kids wanted to stop here. Had a cheese tasting and the old equipment out the back is interesting too. Bought some cheese( found it later in Coles at a much better price sadly) but overall the experience was fun.

We arrived mid- day on a saturday and it was quite busy. The staff were very helpful and friendly in the shop and the tasting area, where there was a selection of cheeses to taste along with some rhubarb pickles /condiments . Some of the cheese mixes I had never tasted before and was quite impressed with the differing flavors... More

Cheese world is great, plenty of lovely things to sample but the best part was the museum. Take the time to talk with one of the volunteers, they know their history and are a delight to chat with.

The cheese tasting is something to write home about. Very much worth the drive. Unfortunately the cafeteria like atmosphere outside the tasting area is disappointing and reveals a lack of vision on the part if the owners. The staff were great.

It was easy to find with plenty of free parking, a short distance before Warrnambool at the end of our long days drive on the Great Ocean Road. We only just arrived in time for the last tasting of the day - 4.30 I think but the lady put out the many different cheeses she was just packing away and... More

Not much to offer here plus pricing is on the high side it maybe okay for the local workers that may receive some pricing discount.

It is easy to find, being a short drive from Warnambool. The museum is small but it is free and it houses some interesting implements and artifacts from the area's cheese- and butter-making history. It only takes a few minutes to wander through, and then you wander into its shop, which offers some wonderful cheeses produced locally. Not a place... More

The cheeseworld museum is a must stop along the way to Warrnambool. You can see all the vintage machinery that went into making cheese back in the day. The only let down is... it's actually cheaper to buy the Warrnambool cheese in the supermarket then it is at the factory! We saw vintage cheddar at the factory for $9 and... More

We stopped here at the same time as a school group but it didn't seem to matter. The cheese tastings are every half hour or hour and they run a video on the shop explaining the process if you are interested. The cheese was yummy - took lots to control my boys from eating the whole lot! The museum was... More
