Best cheese in Australia! Mmmm macadamia cheese just melts in your mouth. Kids loved the animals. Baby chickens were sitting in the trees in the car park.

Great atmosphere and family friendly service. 10 out of 10. The meals are priced right and all the other items in their shop, like Chocolate, Cheeses, Ice cream and souvenirs are excellent. Viewing of milking, cheese and Chocolate making is also an attraction.

If we have visitors we always drive up to show them the place. Yummy chocolate but expensive. Lots of different cheese varieties to buy. Lunch is available and coffee with scones as well. Tablelands are beautiful. Reminds me of Switzerland
