King Island Dairy
King Island Dairy, on King Island in Bass Strait, is one of Australia’s most famous cheese producers.
King Island marks the western edge of Bass Strait, 80 kilometres north west of Tasmania and south of Cape Otway, Victoria.
King Island Dairy produces high quality, French-style camembert, brie and blue cheeses, along with traditional cheddars, hard cheeses, yoghurt and delectable, thick clotted cream. Multi-award winning cheeses are created here from milk produced by the island’s 25 dairy farms and 7,500 dairy cows. You can visit the Fromagerie to sample the King Island range of products and see cheeses maturing in the cellar. In 2002, King Island Dairies celebrated 100 years of dairying, making it one of Australia’s oldest cheese producers.
