There's a revolution taking place in northeastern Tasmania - and cheese is at the heart of it.
Blessed with the type of lush-green pastureland farmers dream of, it's little surprise that the quality of produce coming out of this region is spectacular.
But while it's increasingly possible to find Pyengana's dairy products, including its much-loved cheeses, throughout the country, nothing beats visiting this historic dairy who have been honing their craft for the past 130 years.
Famous for their hard cheeses, including their much-awarded cloth-bound cheddar, Pyengana pride themselves on consistency.
They know how to make winning cheddar and they are dedicated to continuing the practice just as it has been done for so many previous Tasmanian generations.
While here pick up a cheese platter or try a tasting to experience the full range on offer.
And once you've had your fill of cheese, make sure you head to the quirky Pub in the Paddock to meet Priscilla, the 'princess of the paddock'.
Priscilla is a beer-guzzling pig who loves her speciality brew so much that you are welcome to buy her a pint and watch her slosh it down in a matter of moments.
If you're looking for a drink for yourself you'd be hard-pressed to find a better spot to indulge than this circa 1880 establishment, one of Tasmania's oldest that is blessed with unbeatable views of the rolling pastureland this region is known for.
And after a morning of pure excess, the best way to finish off the day is with a short walk into the St Columba Falls.
Hike through the cool temperate rain forest dominated by giant man-ferns and myrtle, sassafras and beech trees to reach the spectacular 90 metre waterfall.
If you've got a little more energy to burn head further down the road to the Halls Falls walking track, where a 90-minute return stroll will take you through dense eucalyptus forests to a historic weir built by timber workers in the late 19th century.
To get to Pyengana head west from St Helens on the Tasman Hwy for 24 kilometres to the Pyengana turn-off.
From here it's only a couple of kilometres in to the dairy and the pub.
