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

We stopped at Cheese World briefly to stretch our legs. It was pleasant enough with a cafe, toilets, a free small museum which is worthy of a stroll through, and we also bought some of their award winning cheese (the herbs and spices blend which was very nice and about $4).

Most recent visit here was a few days ago for a coffee and milkshakes for the kids (decent size and only $3 which I thought was pretty good value), the décor is a little dated but pleasant enough. Nice little gift shop but not child friendly unless they are contained in a pram! You can taste cheeses here as well... More

We have attended Cheeseworld on numerous occasions and enjoyed meals there. The staff are courteous and friendly and the meals tasty. The milkshakes are the best I have tasted anywhere. There is also a large selection of cheeses available for tasting and purchase. A museum is also open daily and worth seeing. Definately a place not to be missed while... More
