The location of this cafe/cheesery was not sign posted well. The cheese tasting was not bad, good selection of local made cheese, jams & relish. The service however was average.

This is a nice stop between the Great Ocean Road and Timboon. A good selection of cheeses, yoghurt and snacks. Nice outdoor sitting area in the garden too.

Followed up cheese tastings inside with a brunch snack of Nacho's under the gazebo, this was so good that the quark that was included on the Nacho's meant a further purchase before we left the venue. Great serving size and delightfully tasty.

The cheeses are very nice, but try the rhubarb vinegar as well when you try the preserves as that is lovely. It's worth the short trip off the road for something different

Drop in if you are in the area and fancy some local cheese - but don't make a special trip to this local cheesery.

As part of the Shulz organic dairy, this place has a great range of cheeses (ask for a tasting if you can!). My tip would be to get a cheese platter to share, and try one of the best milkshakes I've ever tasted, and enjoy the lovely surroundings.
