Part of the allure of visiting Red Hill Cheese is that it’s down a quiet country road, surrounded by a majestic natural environment in the forest. From the tasting room and deck, you can discover the different styles from the Cheese-maker’s selection of premium cheeses.

Trudy Baker's 'Little Alpaca' boutique is almost as endearing as the collections of wonderfully soft luxury fibres she stocks. To us, it's a one-stop natural fibre destination. It's the kind of store that specialises in original products with traditional craftsmanship designed by true creatives, and that's what makes it tick. Trudy stocks elegant, hand crafted women's & men's fashions. All products are made with the highest of standards. The fibres in the shop are always soft and easily worn against the skin, and you will find alpaca, merino, possum, cashmere, mohair, silk, cotton, and linen.
