Charley’s Chocolate Tour is unique in Australia and one of only a few places in the world where you can experience the whole journey of chocolate from “Cocoa Tree to Chocolate Bar”.  

Charley’s is real and genuine! It is deliberately NOT a theme park. It’s authentic and all about how one of our favourite foods comes into being. Charley’s people are passionate about what they do and want you to share the fascinating chocolate story. The tour is fun, very much “hands on” and hugely informative. 

Here are some of the highlights of the tour:  

  • A look at the fascinating 3800 year history of cocoa.
  • Visit the tree nursery and a mature cocoa tree plantation.
  • See the tiny orchid-like flowers and ripe cocoa pods.
  • Look at age-old fermentation and drying techniques.
  • See a cocoa pod being opened and taste cocoa nibs.
  • Take part in some of the steps of making actual chocolate. 
The highpoint of the tour is the chocolate tasting! Here we feature our multi award winning Australian grown and made premium single origin chocolate.

Here is what some of our visitors had to say:  "Knocks the other chocolate factories we've been to out of the park! Very Inspiring."      "One of the most informative tours I've been on (worldwide) Very fascinating and authentic"     "Your passion shines through."     "Yummy"    "Really liked the kids being able to see/learn where our food comes from."

Other important Stuff 

All tours must be pre-booked and paid for, prior to arrival at Charley’s. We welcome kids but ask that they be supervised at all times. Smoking is not permitted.  

All walking is on level or very slightly sloping gravel or grass. Minimal fitness is all that is required. Charley’s is an all-weather tour, at times this may mean slightly muddy conditions underfoot. However, this also means you can visit Charley’s when other tours may not be available.

We welcome children of all ages on our tours. The content is designed for adults and older children, therefore, we find that some young children under 4-5 years old occasionally get restless. To assist we provide colouring books and we try to keep them involved. We are of course very happy to discuss the suitability with you before you book.
