Apostle Whey Cheese


Dairy farmers Julian and Dianne Benson launched Apostle Whey Cheese on October 29, 2005.

Since that day, Apostle Whey Cheese has taken out a number of major cheese awards and become an important tourism drawcard for the region.

Just a short drive from the Twelve Apostles and the Great Ocean Road, Apostle Whey Cheese is a genuine paddock to plate operation. The family’s dairy herd has been bred to produce milk with high butterfat and protein levels, which is critical to the flavours they achieve with their cheeses. For Julian and Dianne, the business is a labour of love that combines two of their passions – sustainable farming and boutique, artisan produce.

Apostle Whey Cheese offers visitors a unique experience whereby they can see all aspects of the operation – from the cows being milked right through to the cheeses being hand made. Free cheese tastings are available every day of the year (except Christmas Day) with onsite sales and refreshments available while you enjoy the view over the farm.

In the months of March, April, July, August and September there are plenty of newborn calves to see as well, which is always a hit with young families in particular.
