Chocolate lovers rejoice! The Phillip Island Chocolate Factory is a short ride from Melbourne and provides visitors with the chance to indulge their sweet tooth. As well as plenty of opportunities to watch chocolatiers in action, you can make your own chocolates and browse the incredible selection of interactive displays and exhibits around the factory.
The factory itself celebrates all things chocolate, where you can dive into a sweet world of truffles, sweets, and everything in between. When you need a rest, head to the café, where you can tuck into a wide range of chocolate treats and a number of unique coffees.
Elsewhere there are a range of weird and wonderful exhibits for you to check out and enjoy, like:
