Great little dairy and chocolates. Do yourself a favour, stop in to shop and keep going as the smell of cow dung is overpowering and ruins your meal. I know it is a working dairy, however a walk or bus to view this would have worked better.

Last year 6 of us became unwell after consuming milk products here as our only place in common. Its very expensive for what... More

Gallo Dairyland is an interesting concept. The tourist attraction is built at an existing and operating dairy farm, where one can see the whole process of milking through to production of magnificent cheeses. Their handmade chocolates are a real treat, and the meals are excellent value and variety. This is a must-do place to take the kids where they will... More

We never give this place a miss when traveling to the tablelands. Lunch is always yummy and they have the most to die for chocolate especially the ones with alcohol!!! My fav though is the Irish cream and mum loves the cointreau!! Service is always friendly and quick.

Gallo's is a family run business that does a great job serving the Tablelands with its cheeses and chocolates. The setting on the dairy farm itself makes it a unique place. Food is delicious if you have lunch there and the cheese and chocolates are delicious too. Have been there a few times now and will return again.
