    Fancy trying a cheese tasting? Best of all, it's free. You also can buy light lunches and look through the (upstairs) museum about local dairying and the cheese industry. This display apparently has won local tourism awards and has been a finalist in NSW State tourism awards. We'd recommend a visit, but try to avoid arriving at the same time as tour buses: remember the old adage never get between a pensioner and a free meal !

    The Bega Cheese Heritage Centre is open seven days a week (except Christmas Day and Good Friday) from 9am to 5pm. You also can have a look into the packing area of the cheese factory.

    The Heritage centre is open daily from 9am to 5pm
    admission is FREE ! this suprised us, and after our visit we agreed that we would have been happy to pay [ but lets not tell the management ]
    there is a very reasonably priced cafe in the centre, also a shop selling cheese and other food items, and a gift shop selling locally made crafts

    as you can see rom the picture there are also toilet facilities

    heifer you need to go, go here

    Bega is the sort of place you drive through, not to...............but if you ever do drive through then stop awhile and visit here

    How interesting can cheese be ? suprisingly very interesting ! the Heritage Centre not only tells you how its made, but lets you into the pristine cheese factory to see it all in action, but the thing we liked best was the museum showing artefacts from daily life, great displays and really good information

    all this and cheese tasting too !

    lets go taste some more cheese....

    Fifteen km north of Bega, on the Princes Highway and overlooking the Brogo River, you will find the Riverview Nursery.

    The proprietors are keen orchid growers, but also specialise in ferns. We found them very friendly and informative. There are more photos of the orchids in my travelogue with this page.
