Cheesey Grins at Kenilworth
It's just 150 kms by road from Brisbane to Kenilworth, so to spend a day in the area, an early start is a good idea. It's a great way to get out of the city and explore some country areas. On my journey north, I visited The Skin Thing and Opals Down Under for quick visits, but will drop into both places again soon
Onwards through the roadworks with no delays, to the turnoff near Eumundi, I turned left to the Eumundi-Kenilworth Road for the last part of the journey, and soon was entering the town of Kenilworth, and soon found the Kenilworth Dairies, which is opposite the Kenilworth Showgrounds.
My goal was to taste and buy some of their famous cheeses. There's a great tasting counter, and several large refrigerators with glass doors which open automatically as you get close!! What a wonderful array of cheeses – I managed to find some very interesting and tasty ones to take to share with my friends.
There's much more than cheese – with an exciting range of sauces, fudge and other fine foods! And of course, don't forget the yoghurts and ice-creams! You can find more information about their products here.
Poppa's Café is at the complex too and as I found, a great place for coffee and food, with plenty of chairs and tables, some of which are in the lawned area, so if one has young children, they can play as the adults enjoy their food and drink.
Did you know that Kraft originally opened the cheesemaking factory way back in 1950, but in the 1980s decided to close it. It was then that locals decided to purchase the business, and as the saying goes "the rest is history".
