Oh boy, the cheese and chocolates at this working farm! Samples are given as you come in, and you won't go away empty handed! The camembert is delicious, but so are the other cheeses. And the chocolates! Yum! Such a change from the usual croc venues.

Just love this tour and brought so much cheese and loved the cheese curds the manager gave us that was not on the menu...It should be so everyone when you go there ask for some cheese curds they are to die for.

Loved visiting. Smaller kids loved the nursery and seeing cheese being made and older kids loved watching the chocolate maker do her thing and trying many different chocolates and us parents loved it all. Well worth the drive to spend some time here. Air conditioned and really helpful lovely staff.

The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars was the coffee, just wasn't good quality (our Nespresso makes smoother coffee)... But so glad we stopped in still! The staff were lovely, cheese yummy & choc tasting nice. The homemade scone with my coffee was delicious too ($3.50). The best bit was the childrens toy corner meant we could have... More

This place provides very good food at a fair price and shows you just how some of it is made. Sadly staffing levels seem a bit low so service can be a little slow. Also not all the tours etc are available every day (the chocolate factory tour was shut when we went). However, if you are in the area... More

We were just driving through the area looking at waterfalls and went by their road sign. I am so glad we stopped by. Such a friendly staff. Great cheese. Beautiful coffee. Fun walk through the animal area. And delicious ice cream! I am so glad we stopped. Thanks for the great time!

Drove from Cairns to visit this place. Upon arrival there was ample parking. When we walked in it was fairly busy and the staff were run off their feet. We stood at the cheese counter waiting for tastings for about 10min before I joined the 'cafe' line so that staff would acknowledge my existence. Eventually an employee came, apologised for... More

We did a day trip out here from palm cove. It was worth it! As soon as we walked through the door we had a warm welcome from the staff. We did a cheese tasting then ordered the small cheese platter - which my husband said was the best platter he's ever had. We would definitely recommend a visit to... More

This is a great place to stop for a meal and learn something about the history of the family and their cheese. Free tasting of cheese and they will pack in ice if you buy
