Blackall Gold - A Clandestine Operation Producer

Woombye is one of those small towns that everyone knowswhere it is but no one has really heard of it before. Describingit’s location is simple. It’s where the Big Pineapple is on theSunshine Coast! Once an Aussie tourism icon, the BigPineapple is now used for music festivals and the odd farmersmarket on Sundays. Woombye Cheese Co continues this localtradition of “where is it” with their operation feeling soclandestine that the only way to find them is with a precise GPSmarker and knowing exactly which tree to turn at. There is nosign or hint that greatness comes from this area. Unlike WillyWonka where “nobody ever goes in, and nobody ever comesout”, their cheese shows up all around the country shrouded inmystery. We have no idea how anyone goes in, because evenwe can’t find it on our weekly hunt for them.
