Dennington, an industrial town on the outskirts of Warrnambool, is likely best remembered as the original home of Nestle, renowned for chocolate.

But the commercial site is now home to Fonterra, and the operation there has actually been tied up with the production of condensed milk, ever since it was first built as the largest condensed milk factory in the world, back in 1911.

But of course, the local Shamrock Hotel ensures there's a balanced range of beverages to be had in the town.
