By cramming the cheese sampling with the store and cafe, visitors are tripping over one another. Someone should reorganize the layout so the samples are proffered by an educated Bega cheese enthusiast, and the cafe has a fighting chance of delivering their meals. The space...More

The heritage display upstairs need lots of TLC. It is interesting and no doubt looked good in the past, but it seems that nothing has been done to maintain it for a long time. Dust, signs falling off or missing. There is a Craft Shop...More

For a feature destination in Bega it could be better. No tours, very much a DIY place. The cafe was disappointing - coffee was rubbish and fake cream and jam in little packets was just not good enough.

An interesting attraction for the whole family. Parking was a little primitive as were the toilets at the other end of the facility. I was surprised there were no 'walks' or 'tours' available as with other working sites of this style - you can actually...More

Had a lovely time visiting this attraction and would visit again. We loved that you could sample the cheeses which aren’t sold in the supermarkets and could also purchase gifts, food, cakes/slices and various drinks. Think that they could do more with this attraction like...More

The Bega Cheese Heritage Centre is located next to the Bega Cheese processing plant at the edge of the town. I believe it is a must visit for anyone passing through or visiting Bega. Every aspect of dairying and cheese making are exhibited and the...More

We stopped here again this was our second visit in 12 months.... Nothing had improved, scones were average, coffee was ok, milkshakes were fine. This place needs a complete overhaul to become a tourist destination. It looks like nothing has been done to it in...More

The cheese tasting was a self-serve situation but it was good, there was no pressure to buy. There is a short list of cheeses that are exclusive to the Bega Heritage Cheese Factory which you get to try samples of. They also sell multiple other...More

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.
