orbost butter factory

Orbost has been home to whitefellas since the 1840s, and their cows, pigs, crops and timber mills pretty much ever since. This butter factory was built in 1892. I didn’t go inside, but would really like to one day…

About Vetti

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!

    Pasadena: Been awhile…as far as I know,the most recent activity the factory has seen was the construction of the Curlip II – a replica of the original (1890) Curlip paddle steamer, which traversed the Snowy River between Orbost and Marlo until 1919.

    Hi Vetti, I am am one of current owners of the Orbost Butter Factory. We are slowly restoring it. We have catalogued the graffiti left by the local kids. If your down that way at Easter we would love to show you around.

    Excellent. 1840’s – we of the colonial empires….wouldn’t you love to take the time machine back to that period to see the shape of the land, the first people etc
