Pyenghana Cheese


About Pyenghana Cheese

The Pyengana Dairy Company makes award-winning, traditional cheeses, in Pyengana, northeast Tasmania. Pyengana is an Aboriginal word meaning the meeting of two rivers - and the Pyengana Dairy Company sits in this lush river valley favoured by dairy farmers. Tasty, sturdy cheeses have been made using traditional methods at Pyengana for more than 100 years, and present cheese maker Jon Healey still uses equipment from that time. You can watch cheese being made, sample some of Pyengana's award-winning produce and then buy your own hearty, mature cheddar. Or perhaps take home a fresh, cloth-wrapped cheese and lay it down to mature over winter. Visit the Dairy Shop for fresh milkshakes and cakes or browse the range of locally made crafts and pottery. You can also visit some of the area's waterfalls including the St Columba Falls, plunging nearly 90 metres/295ft from the Mt Victoria foothills to the South George River valley. Pyengana is a half-hour drive from the northeast coastal town of St Helens (27km/17 miles) and an hour from Scottsdale (73km/45 miles).
