Cheese World promotes the local dairy industry through offering tastings and sales of the award winning Warrnambool Heritage Cheddar, Cracker Barrel, Mil Lel and Coon cheese varieties produced across the road at the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory.

The aim of the business is to promote local gourmet products to the visitors who stop here on their way along the Great Ocean Road. Educational information on the local dairy industry both past and present is offered through a modern cheese making video filmed in the factory and a walk back in time through the local history museum.

The Museum houses artifacts, photos and personal items belonging to early local dairy farming families. The factory was first established on this site in 1888 and has continued to grow to become a major contributor to the local economy.

Enjoy lunch or a snack in the licensed cafe. Cheese Platters and Ploughman's Lunches are a specialty.

Free hourly cheese tastings.
