The Pombo Mart is an iconic building on the Princes Highway at Pomborneit between Colac and Camperdown in Victoria, Australia. The building began life as a Creamery operated by the Camperdown Cheese and Butter Factory in 1892, and was of timber construction.
In 1908, Bacchus Marsh Concentrated Milk Co. Ltd. purchased the Creamery and produced Lifeguard Milk. The Nestle Anglo Swiss Company acquired the building in 1917 and the company replaced the timber construction with the current iron building.
In 1936, the building was re-purchased by the Camperdown Cheese and Butter Factory who operated there until its closure in the mid 1950s.
The Pombo Mart faces west, and the colour of the setting sun reflected on the buildings.
