Whether it’s hard or soft, blue or white, fresh or aged, Australians love cheese. On platters, on pasta, in salads, between slices of bread, via an intravenous drip or slathered on plywood, we just can’t get enough.

Mould Cheese Festival is a celebration of Australian cheese, presented by Bottle Shop Concepts in collaboration with Nick Haddow of Bruny Island Cheese. The best producers from around the country, including Bruny Island, Yarra Valley Dairy, Woodside Cheese Wrights, Pyengana, Holy Goat La Luna and more, will showcase their produce at North Melbourne’s Meat Market in a farmers’-market-turned-festival style setting, with bonus cooking demonstrations and masterclasses.

Alongside the best Australian cheeses, we’ll have the best Australian cheesemongers including Maker & Monger and its grilled cheese sandwiches and flaming Reubens, and Harper & Blohm and its raclette. We’ll also have Tivoli Road Bakery with breads and other baked goods, and Pidapipo with its cheese-flavoured gelato.

It wouldn’t be a Bottle Shops Concepts event without a considered and well-stocked bar. To drink alongside all the cheese, we’ve got wines from Patrick Sullivan and Pennyweight, Starward whisky, plus beer and cider. The ticket price includes a drink, as well as all cheese tastings.

Come and taste the best cheese from all over Australia in one place.
