Loved the cheese at this place. Tastings cost $1 per person and you get to try 12 different kinds. The garlic flavour is the most popular and when you eat it you know why.
They also offer milk, ice cream and you can flavour your own milk.
Dog at the front door is adorable as well

Loved the cheese
We visited during afternoon milking time.
Adults pay AUD$1 for tasting approximately 10 varieties of cheese made on the farm, kids get samples free!
We ended up buying four varieties.

A lovely stop on our road trip to the 12 Apostles. We enjoyed a $1 cheese tasting of 12 cheeses produced there. The lady serving us was friendly and informative and made us feel welcomed. The cheese was delicious and we purchased a number of products to take home. We enjoyed some cheese toasties and milkshakes also.

We love cheese and given we live in the Adelaide Hills, there’s plenty of good cheese all around. At first we thought, why bother, we already have good cheese , but wow we are glad we did. The tasting was simple, informative, done well and only $1...who’d say no. Following the tasting, we ended up by nearly $80 of cheese. If you like cheese, don’t miss out on this, do yourself a favour and have a visit.

For a $1 a person you could taste 12 different types of cheese all made by Apostle whey. Not fancy in their approach but great cheese! They know and produce lots cheese rather than simply sell cheese made by various farms in Vic and SA. Not only that but our visit also coincided with the late afternoon milking of the cows which was a wonderful experience for our toddler to see in the shed next door. All 4 of our children enjoyed making their own flavoured milk with the Apostle Whey milk they sold there as well. All in all it was one of our favourite stops on the 12 Apostles Gourmet trail. Not fancy but very real with friendly people. A very family friendly place!!!!

We stopped in as we were following a taste the region map and the Fudge place had recommended it.
Tasting was $1 per person, with 10 cheese. The lady was nice, but I felt the tasting was a little rushed. Barely had time to chew one cheese and the next one was ready and being talked about.
The lady serving us, did give a suggestion about cooking pasta with the feta oil, which we have now tried, twice, and WOW it is so good, simple and tastes amazing.

The cheeses at Apostle Whey Cheese are made from fresh cows' milk. You can see the cows on the farm, from whence comes the creamy milk that provides the raw material for the cheese. The cheeses made in a variety of styles; personally; I like the feta best, but have a try from the tasting platter and see which you prefer. Apostle Whey Cheese is in the Great Ocean Road hinterland, there are quite a few gourmet food producers popping up in the area, tasting these delicacies adds a new dimension to your Great Ocean Road explorations.
