Visited and hope to see more variety but it is a small place with only a handful of Goat and cow dairy products. Not much variety and taste is ok and not fantastic.

It hits you straight away, but don't be deterred by the smell in the air! A quaint little set up and a good place to stop by if you're keen to purchase some local fare like jams and marmalades. The cheese isn't groundbreaking, but I did walk away with a tub of 'hot cow' - cows milk cheese with fresh... More

If you like cheese, this is a must visit with various types of cheese you've possibly never tasted before as well as some boutique wines

This place stocks great products like chocolates and cooking spices etc but we found their cheese to be very ordinary. Did not like their goats cheese coated in ash at all! (Their star product). We did buy a plain cheese more out of obligation after trying several others but ended up throwing it out as it was quite bland and... More

Staff were rude. Service was terrible. Food was really expensive. Whole venue smells like cow manure. Plenty of other awesome places to eat in Yarra Valley, so just not worth visiting.

We stopped in Yarra Valley Dairy after a couple of wineries and enjoyed the cheese and yummy bread. It is definitely worth a visit except customer service which is terrible... They're only here to sell products and have no interest in advising, just wait for your money!

This venue is very comfortable and has a lovely view. Cheese with bread and cracker samples were very tasty. The only draw back is they sell many items and none are made there which some labels don't tell you where they come from and things like goat's milk have no label.

Yarra Valley Dairy offers cheese tasting as well as wine tasting of local small wineries for free up to 7 people. It is the most popular place to try local cheese and wines in the area.

We were in the queue to order and were refused service by a staff member who told us we couldn't order as it was 4.33pm by the time we got to the front of the queue! Terribe customer service. We have previously... More

Tasted about 5 types of cheese. Had a cool drink. Nice view. Purchased a few cheeses, very expensive. Our 4th dairy visited in Australia and way more expensive than the others.
