Was interesting to taste sheep yoghurt and icecream and see them being milked behind the glass screen. Probably better for younger kids.

An informative, indoor viewing of sheep being milked, friendly staff who regaled the delights of the cheeses and sheep produce and warm coonara to sidle up to with a must have homemade ice-cream. Great place!

After finally locating the entrance was extremely disappointed to see a locked gate and a "closed to the end of the year" sign. We had especially scheduled this attraction into our itinerary, would have been nice if we had been fore warned.
