SLOW DOWN, STOP "MOOOOVING" SO FAST AND MEET THE LOCALS  AT THE WORLDS DAIRY CAPITAL

Take time to explore the town’s  natural, agricultural, and colonial history.

Whilst Cobden’s claim as the worlds ‘Dairy Capital’ may not be an official statistic, the 140,000 head of cattle and Australia’s largest dairy drying plant provide significant evidence.

Cobden, located within the prosperous soils of the Crater and Lakes District, is situated 30 minutes north of the Great Ocean Road (closest coastal town is Port Campbell) and 2.5 hours from Melbourne. Like many of the neighboring towns, Cobden is rich in natural and colonial history.

More unique to Cobden are the numerous ways to explore these assets.
