After having an cheese platter in such a wonderful garden I couldn't resist to buy the absolutely amazing herbal quark and the natural yogurt. Definitely worth a little detour from the great ocean road!

This is an adorable cheese place with free tastings! Their cheese is very good and they also have coffees or plates to purchase. The plates are a little more expensive but well worth it.
