Melba’s Chocolate And Confectionery Factory

Amusement and Theme Parks

Melba’s Chocolate Factory is a ‘working’ tourism factory located in a heritage listed complex 40 minutes from Adelaide at Woodside in the Adelaide Hills.

From 1919 the South Australian Farmers’ Cooperative Union made the site famous by producing cheese, butter, margarine and small goods, which were recognised worldwide. This activity ceased in 1976. From 1991, with 1940’s era chocolate and confectionery making equipment, the current owners began their dream making old Australian favourite chocolate and confectionery.

Visitors today find the old cheese factory transformed into a large emporium-style confectionery factory shop. This is a centrepiece for five different rooms, where various manufacturing processes can be viewed. These are the Chocolate Room, Depositing Room, Packing Room, Panning Room and Toffee Room.

Visitors are encouraged to speak to the staff who have mastered the use of the heritage equipment, making old fashioned favourites in the time honoured tradition. An additional interesting feature is the collection of antique and quaint memorabilia from times past, which can be found on display around the factory walls. There’s also a Coffee Shop that offers visitors a range of drinks, along with a vast array of flavoured Hot Chocolates. An exciting new addition, for all chocolate lovers who visit.
