    Cheese Please. Visit is a must if you are on King Island.
    We were treated to a tasting plate of six cheeses with tasting notes provided. Drinks are available at reasonable prices. The cheese lived up to its quality reputation and I found two varieties that I was surprised by (in a good way). There is a small shop of cheese related products and some history of the factory. We could select other cheeses and request samples. We walked away with plenty of cheese to gift and enjoy ourselves. Favourite cheese was the smoked cheddar.

    Must do!
    A must visit if you are in King Island. Generous complimentary tastings, decent prices and good service. Recommend timing your visit so you can enjoy a drink and platter or baked Brie in addition to your tasting.

    If you love Cheese, this place is a must visit
    Great place to sample as many as possible chesses from KI. Loved all the std selection, and even the special reserve tastings they provided as extra for free. The tasing was also free if you made a purchase

    Our highlight of KI!
    We were on a tour of KI and found many of the island's attractions a bit ho-hum. A definite exception to this is the King Island Dairy, where we were able to taste a variety of exception cheeses (for free) and then purchase from their on-site shop for what seemed very reasonable prices. Many of the cheeses for tasting and sale here are not available from regular retail outlets. Our favourite was the Stokes Point Smoked Cheddar, though think the Lighthouse Blue Brie ran it a close second.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a lovely lady who knew how to get the most out of our tasting experience. The platter we had was a reflection of our tasting experience preferences. Had a great bottle of wine with the cheese.

The cheese shop which was part of the King Island Dairy is excellent. They give you a free sample plate and you can purchase hot or cold drinks to go with them. The shop has a big range of the King Island cheeses including some which you can’t readily get elsewhere. They sell cold packs to enable you to take as much cheese as you like home on the plane! Customer service was excellent.

We were on a small group tour and went to King Island Cheese factory.
We were given taste test of their magnificent cheeses. Some of which you can buy in the supermarkets but a couple were new to me.
Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. There are lots of cheese and souvenirs to purchase.
