Where is the Best Chocolate Factory Near Melbourne?

Located at 35 Old Healesville Road corner Melba Highway in Yarra Glen, Yarra Valley Chocolaterie is Melbourne’s best chocolate factory that lets you indulge in the sweetness of Aussie hospitality. Plus, it only takes you an hour of scenic drive from Melbourne’s central business district and is far better than any store or chocolate factory in Melbourne.

Their Great Wall of Chocolate features 34 different varieties of chocolate. As you sample their sweets you can also watch their Belgian and French chocolatiers in action, handcrafting and packaging their chocolate creations. Many of their products use native ingredients and indigenous packing materials and arts. Also, the ingredients and the seasonal fruits of their ice cream are locally sourced.
