Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Kenilworth is a small rural township in the beautiful Mary Valley. Part of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland its rolling hills and lush green pasture make this ideal dairy country. The Kenilworth Cheese Factory was purchased from the Kraft Corporation in 1990 by a group of former employees who created a factory that specialised in quality hand crafted cheeses. Recently the factory was purchased by the Cochrane family, 6th generation local dairy farmers, who are determined to enhance the tradition of quality dairy production. Utilising the milk from their own herd, creating the Kenilworth Dairies brand and investing heavily in the Kenilworth factory has ensured the tradition of udderly delicious dairy products will continue to flourish in the Mary Valley. There is a lot happening at the factory with renovations and with the possible cheese making work shops (TBA). Open 7 days a week 9am - 4pm for Cheese Tastings, Coffee, Lunch or Snack. Hope to see you at Kenilworth Dairies.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase

Decided to stop for lunch at Kenilworth and visit the cheese factory. What a delightful place, tasted most of their cheeses that were on offer, couldn't decide on a favourite they were all delicious. Onto the yoghurt and mousse after the cheese, the chocolate mousse was yummy so was the yoghurt. Unfortunately we couldn't buy any as we had no esky with us and we still had 5 days before returning home, so lesson here is take something to keep your purchases from spoiling. They also sell a range of local produce and ice creams, we were going to return for an ice cream after lunch but that is another story. If you are driving through Kenilworth and enjoy the odd bit of cheese do stop at the cheese factory you wont be disappointed.

Excellent choice of different cheeses and situated in Kenilworth Town. You can taste as you go round and they do excellent yogurts too.

In the hinterland out from Nambour, but lovely scenic country driving there and back through Mapleton, and Montville to make a good half day trip. Free cheese tasting allows you to try quite a few of the different varieties of cheese that are made there, before you make a purchase. Their yoghurt samples were very creamy and delicious, and we took some of these away. Local produce, wine, tea, jams, preserves and souvenirs are also available for purchase. A small cafe is on site for snacks. There was no cheese production when we visited this time but there are viewing windows when going. Kenilworth is a cute little country village.
