Fresh, handcrafted cheese made in one of this country’s most beautiful regions.

Creating beautiful cheese is our life. Originally founded by Graeme and Karen Paynter in 2013, our range has grown to include Camembert, Triple Cream Brie, Blackall Gold Washed Rind, Woombye Ash Brie, Vintage Cheddar and of course, our indulgent Truffle Triple Cream Brie.

At Woombye Cheese Company we make all our award-winning cheese at our Sunshine Coast hinterland property – it is the perfect place to make cheese – with its panoramic vistas of rolling green hills, creeks and bushland. We produce all of our cheese by hand, using traditional methods with care and experience.

Today, Woombye Cheese Company is owned by Beth O’Leary who has a passion for artisan cheese. She travelled Australia with her family in 2019 doing the ‘Big Lap’ which became the ‘Big Lap of Cheese’ when they managed to visit over 30 cheesemakers across the country! Beth is backed by a fantastic team based in our factory in West Woombye.

We are proud to say our cheeses can be found on the menus of some of Australia’s best restaurants and in top retail outlets across Australia.


Woombye is situated in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast region, approximately a 1 hour drive north of Brisbane. Surrounded by beautiful agricultural and dairy country, it is the perfect place to make cheese.
