Firstly, there are many reviews out there that are so trashy that you couldn't even find them the back pages of a gossip mag. Yarra Valley Dairy does cheese, almost exclusively soft cheese. It should be rated on its produce and staff, not how many people were in your way to the counter. For it's cheese it gets a solid... More

Didn't end up having a meal - but the space is very compact and when there's too many people - its a bit hectic. Good luck getting a table for those that are looking to sit and eat. Cheeses that I tried were delicious though!

We stopped by the Yarra Valley Dairy on the way home from a trip to Healesville, Victoria. The facility doesn't look like much from the outside with old, weathered clapboards and rusty metal roofs. But once inside you enter an entirely different atmosphere of a quaint store and bistro with wonderful treats on offer. The staff does a great job... More

Disappointed as was much below expectations. The "shop" area was small and very cramped with little room to move. Items were more expensive than I would have thought. (A small child's bucket of ice-cream was $5). A sign at the entrance advised that coffee finished at 4.30pm however our request for a coffee at 4.25pm was met with a staff... More

Had heard good things so when had English visitor headed this way after a few cellar door visits. They have a small selection of wine to taste (free) highlighting small vineyards that dont have their own cellar door. This changes regularly but the selection was great and we purchased several. Had a delicious cheese plate with some duck parfait and... More

Beautifull Dairy Farm, lots of Cheese To choose from and they also stock various produce from the locals. Only reason i gave it 3 stars was i thought it would have more dairy on offer such as yoghurt and ice cream. Theres also a cafe on site.

We stopped here on our way home from a wonderful tour to pick up some cheeses for dinner that night. The place has a lovely ambiance even though it was very crowded when we were there. We tasted a few cheeses although the staff seemed hesitant to give to much away. I really didn't think their cheeses were that great... More

Visited as part of Yarra Valley Wine Tasting Tour. Good range of tastings covering both goat and cow cheeses. Plenty of quality produce to buy.
