Mould: A Cheese Festival Melbourne 2021

I am sure all of us cheese-lovers were severely disappointed when Mould was postponed earlier this year. Well, we have some happy news for you; Mould is set to return to Melbourne this month! Celebrating the amazing work of Australian cheesemakers, the cheese festival invites you to discover, learn, and taste the best cheese our country has to offer.
