Great range of chocolates and cheese

This small dairy is a regular spot for the young family and I to visit, to kill their hunger with the bistro, but also give my three year old much joy to see daddy getting licked by an animal. They make cheese and chocolate at the dairy which you can buy throughout Cairns and tablelands. Nice and cool, worth a... More

The shop is associated with a working dairy farm. They have chocolates, cheeses and ice creams. They make the chocolates and cheese but not the ice cream. We tried some cheeses and they were all very creamy without much flavor - more like Wisconsin and not like New York cheeses. The restaurant is very clean and the service very quick.... More

Love the cheese here and the chocolate! Small petting farm for the kids but hate seeing the cows all cramped up outside. Why can't they roam free???

Trip to the tablelands isn't complete without the kids begging to go to Gallo's. They love the cheeses, handmade chocolates and of course the cows!

I don't know if we came on a bad day or bad time but it was a bit of a let down. The only saving grace was the chocolates - some great looking ones with some funky flavours. Other than that nothing special, stopped on the way back to Cairns from Milla Milla just for something to do.

Great experience, being able to see the cheese being made onsite, along with all the decadent chocolates. Wonderful for families or animal lovers small petting farm out the back, good to have the chance to sight the cows being milked. We always have a morning or afternoon tea overlooking the valley. Delicious scones...
