  • We love cheeses so this was a must do stop. So many lovely cheeses to choose from. Also a wonderful selection of chocolates. Lovely modern place. You can sit for a coffee & snack if you want. Hilariou...  more »
  • It will be a form to take a highland tour or to go by car rental, but you can get there without hesitation even with a rental car. The lunch menu is also one of the best lunch menus in Australia, so i think it's just a good choice to use as a lunch break. Of course, because it is a ranch, it makes variously using the dairy products which were able to be taken in my place and amuses it. The product can also be purchased at a supermarket in Cairns. There is also a time to visit the milking of cows once a day. It's just a tour, but i think it's good to go after 14:30 and see the animals and see the milk squeeze. If you stop by during the break in the afternoon, if you have children, it's a good event.

  • We wanted to spend time in the mountains and lakes and read about this place and it’s cheese so went and checked it out. The cheese was amazing, you can see the “small” cheese board in the pictures which was a lot of cheese for three people. My favourite was the macadamia flavour which I bought two lots of after tasting! The chocolates were delicious too. It only took an hour and 15 or less to get here from north cairns city.
  • Very smelly place to have a cafe. But food was tasty, downfall...was portions are undersized for price. :( pricey chocolates.... and 1 scoop of icecream expensive. Staff where friendly. Checked animal nursery, sad sad. Calves sitting and standing in poo. Bird cages not clean, pens at entrance very very smelly. Smell is overwhelming in the nursery. Sad place for all the animals....
