  • Awesome experience! Cheeses are delicious. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Toasties were great! Macadamia cheese is a must try! We bought a few blocks of cheese and were going on a long drive, so they gave us ice packs to keep the cheese cold. You get to pat calves and see different animals. You can even see the milking process. 20/10 would recommend.
  • The staff met us with a cheesy grin. They were helpful and had great customer service. The restaurant was busy therefore service was a little slow, however the staff did their best. Great place to take kids to show them the animals and the process of making cheese and chocolate. Well worth the visit.
  • We love cheese so did cheese tasting and was not bad not very special. Staff were very friendly. Good to watch cheese and chocolate making.
  • Loved the chocolate would love to have seen cheese being made and communication with the chocolate room.. but overall the kids loved the animals 😆
  • Great chocolates, coffee and service. The kids enjoyed watching the cows being milked and learnt a lot from the dairy hand.

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.
