Managed and operated by the City of Casey in Melbournes Southeast suburbs, the Old Cheese Factory was originally part of the historic Springfield Estate. Visitors take a step back in time and explore the historic buildings, including the Homestead Café, or enjoy the beautifully landscaped gardens, large children’s playground, and barbecue/picnic facilities.
The majestic Old Cheese Factory, featuring the 1860s historic Springfield Homestead, Cheese Factory and Kitchen Wash House, stands as a tall reminder of early Australian history.
