  • Absolutely awesome food huge serves as hard as I try I can never finish my meal great place to visit for all ages great service too.
  • Lovely staff and nice food. My daughter spilled her iced chocolate and the lady was so sweet. Offered us another one free and had it cleaned up on minutes. The burger was beautiful and i will be coming back. Really interesting display to watch cheese and chocolate making.
  • Awesome chocolate! Rum and raisin is the best. Also nice to stop in for lunch and a cheese platter on a tablelands trip.
  • Great cheese! Beautiful lunch at the cafe. Also an animal petting zoo for the kids which was fantastic
  • "Delicious cheeses"? Can't believe I read that! We ordered a cheese platter. According to the literature there are awarding winning cheeses on sale at this dairy - there certainly didn't seem to be any on the platter we received. What we got was a heap of dried out, tasteless, rubbery stuff passed off as cheese. Not one of the cheeses on the platter had any merits. We came away feeling like we had eaten a bucket of tasteless fat, though we ended up leaving most of it on the platter. The presentation was abysmal, they seemed to think that cutting the cheese into little triangles and piling it onto a wooden board would create a pleasing effect, it looked so unappetising, and was! I would NOT recommend, very very disappointing.

Where to stay in Cairns

Though Cairns seems to offer an endless selection of cozy rooms, most budget-friendly options remain fully booked through the high season, stretching from June to September. Reserve early if you want a hotel room packed with amenities, or look for alternative lodgings in the city's smaller inns. As the backpacker capital of northern Queensland, Cairns features dozens of economical hostels providing comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi. For something far more luxurious, look for centrally located rental apartments with spacious rooms and harbor views.
