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

Stopped off for afternoon tea in the "country style" café. More like a greasy spoon with a horrible smell of old oil. Usual milk bar fare on offer. Didn't bother to eat anything but went straight through to cheese shop. Allansford cheese was excellent with good selection. Apart from that, just your usual over priced providor offerings.

Looked good from outside large processing plant and buildings, all in the heart of the sleepy countryside. Inside small cheese museum and small cafe with a little shop where cheese tasting took place. Only a few on offer to taste but were very good. Could be made more interesting if whole process was shown. Not really cheese world.. Only worth... More

Great cheeses and a variety of many foods such as jams, chocolates. They also have free cheese tasting which makes it easier in order to select cheese for purchase.

Its not much of a museum. They have a variety of cheese. We thought we would be able to see the production side but we could only do the tasting and buy cheese. Do not go here if you just want to sightsee
