Pyengana: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Pyengana Dairy Company


The Pyengana Dairy Company makes award-winning, traditional cheeses, in Pyengana, north east 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 cheese makers under the guidance of master cheese maker, Jon Healey, still use 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 cascading St Columba Falls, plunging nearly 90 metres/295 feet from the Mount Victoria foothills to the South George River valley.
Pyengana is a half hour drive from the north east coastal town of St Helens (27 kilometres/17 miles) and an hour from Scottsdale (73 kilometres/45 miles).
