Most people will come here for the cheese. And the cheese is fantastic as you would expect. But there is so much more here. Information & a video about it's past, good food if you want morning tea or lunch, and pleasant staff. There are...More

Upstairs there was a small but free museum which was pretty interesting (if you have the time to read and take it all in). Downstairs there was a great selection of cheeses to taste. The heritage cheese was my favourite and apparently you can't get...More

Upstairs is where the history is, photos, bits and bobs, carts. A great display of yesteryear cheese making and the life’s of our early farmers. Downstairs you can sample various cheeses. You can buy cheese, ice cream, fudge and or visit the cafe. Reasonable prices....More

Area upstairs with interesting machinery from the bygone years. Local crafts can be purchased, loving my travel slippers. The highlight of my stop was the hot chocolate....best I have had. Will stop in again next time I am travelling.

The heritage centre is ok but the food was excellent. Had the yummiest steak sandwich and the young ones enjoyed a cheese covered hot dog and milkshakes. Worth the visit just for the lunch!

Firstly it’s free....upstairs there is some old cheese making equipment from around the district. Great to see it getting preserved but a number of items seemed to be tacky...the best example is a fibreglass cow with 6 hind legs. Down stairs there’s the cheese tasting...More

Made a quick unplanned stop here on the way to Jindabyne. Obviously the cheese is delicious and free tasting is fantastic. The cute little museum up the top is interesting, but not fantastic for a handsy toddler.

Yes it is open. It has an attached museum that's interesting. Cheese tasting and types/sizes available that are not easy to find elsewhere. I enjoyed going there.
