Gallo Dairyland

Well worth a drive and only an hour from Cairns on the lush tropical Atherton Tablelands you will find a dairy farm that has opened the doors, or rather their gates, to the public. With the farming enterprise positioned half way between Atherton and Malanda you will be pleasantly surprised to find a fully operational dairy farm; a gourmet cheese factory; a sensational café/restaurant; and last but not least the most beautiful hand-crafted chocolate.

About Gallo Diaryland

About Gallo Diaryland

Gallo Dairyland is a family owned and operated business situated half way between Atherton and Malanda and spread across 1000 acres of rich red volcanic soil, the dairy farm milks on average 500 cows twice a day. Giovanni Gallo emigrated from Italy back in the 1920’s and after years of working the land and growing vegetables Giovanni purchased the farm in 1937. Visitors get to see how the age old method of cheese making has evolved over the years to be come a complex and innovative process. With European cheese makers developing new and unusual cheeses, alongside the old favourites, a visit to Gallo Dairyland is not only informative it is fascinating and - very - tasty.
