    Well worth a look.
    An interesting place to drop into for a look and some tastings. The taster is very reasonably priced at $1 per person and the range was interesting and locally made. Our assistant was really helpful too. At the end of the tasting there is cheese on hand to buy. Maybe take cash though as the minimum eftpos is $10.

    Tourist visit
    For our experience I felt that the woman who was doing the cheese tastings had an abrupt demeanour. When I asked the young man who was behind the counter how much a particular cheese was he said, there is the price in big numbers making me feel foolish. Apart from that the cheeses are superb and be bought the brie and heytesbury harvest chilli. If you want tourists to visit you need to get a new cheese tasting sales person. Rude and abrupt was my experience.

    An absolute gem! You must visit!
    Our visit was recommended by friends, as we drove home from the twelve apostles. So glad we visited! The gentleman who served us was lovely, explaining the various cheeses and the cheese making processes. He encouraged us to taste a variety of cheese, which we did and then we purchased seven cheeses between us. The five I purchased were absolutely delicious! I highly recommend visiting Apostle Whey Cheese and purchasing their cheeses. We will definitely be back!

Great cheese tasting by the dairy farmer himself. Awesome variety of cheeses. Available to purchase in town at the supermarket but the family love sharing the process.

Did the $1 cheese tasting. Nine different cheeses. All explained very well by friendly and professional staff. The camembert is especially good but the brie is awesome too. The different havarti types are all great, the garlic infused one a genuine surprise (good surprise). Don’t miss out on the feta, even if your palette is tired. Unique. Well worth dropping in.

A must visit for cheese lovers. A bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort. Best cheeses that we have tasted in a long time, since France. TH e fresh non homogenised milk is also an added bonus. Real milk for a change as it used to be.

We took our 18 yo granddaughter from the UK. Had a tasting session for $1 each for about 10 different cheeses. Great value and we ended up spending $99.00 on delicious cheeses. Very impressive marketing and most happy with our purchases.

Our family took the turn down the the Great Ocean Road Gourmet Food Trail this week in search of lunch. We stopped at Apostle Whey Cheese and were delighted with our lunch. We took part in the cheese tasting for $1 per person. The cheese was Devine! We then ordered toasted cheese sandwiches and some cheese platters to share for lunch between our family six. Everything was beautiful and the service was delightful! We also purchased some rhubarb relish to take home. A highlight of our holiday! I highly recommend you stop here!

Loved the cheese at this place. Tastings cost $1 per person and you get to try 12 different kinds. The garlic flavour is the most popular and when you eat it you know why.
They also offer milk, ice cream and you can flavour your own milk.
Dog at the front door is adorable as well
