Old Cheese Factory


Originally part of the historic Springfield Estate, the Old Cheese Factory allows visitors to step back in time and explore the historic buildings, including the Homestead Café, venue host for weddings and family functions, 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 Australia’s early history.

The Homestead Café is a great place for scrumptious lunch, homemade scones, coffee or High Tea with family and friends, a work meeting or to celebrate a special occasion, baby shower or wedding reception. Within the Café and gardens, a number of venues are available to suit a range of purposes. The Café stocks many quality gifts, home wares and plants which are also available for purchase.

The Old Cheese Factory has a variety of rooms and areas for birthday parties, Christmas functions, conferences or that special occasion are available, ranging in size from 10 to 150. All rooms are located within the grounds and surrounded by gardens, easy access to playgrounds, barbecues and toilets.

The venue offers a variety of ways to celebrate your wedding. Our various packages offer flexibility and can suit your requirements ranging from the most intimate of gatherings for 20 guests, to an elaborate celebration of 400 people. You can select a Homestead catered wedding package or one of our self-planned wedding options, allowing you maximum flexibility to customise and coordinate your special day.
