The building looks old and dated, the staff look as tired as the building. Snappy when we asked a couple of questions however happy to grab my money when we bought some chocolates. Chocolates were cheaper but not worth the trip. Save your time and money and see the other wonderful sites around hobart. Will not be back!!!

We visited the Cadbury chocolate shop 19 years ago and the tour was fantastic they took you through all of the production lines, let you taste free samples, plus you were able to buy bags full of reject chocolate at very cheap prices. We went back last year and took the kids along and were really disappointed. There was no... More

They are clearly aware that many people arrive expecting a factory tour as there are signs everywhere pointing out that there is not one. There is a small charge to get in per person and as most people have mentioned, this essentially just allows you to a short presentation and access to a shop to buy things, even with our... More

Factory tours are no longer permitted due to OH&S regulations. There is an informative talk and presentation and the chocolate shop is great. The setting itself is really dated and needs a spruce up. Not sure if the entry fee is worth what you get for it. Cheap chocolate is a bonus if you're a sweet tooth.

The chocolate in the shop was cheap and great for gifts to take home. Where our money was taken the service wasn't overly great, quite rushed and money grabbing it felt. Tour group was so big there weren't enough seats for everyone during the presentation.

While in Tassie for our first time, hubby and I went to the Cadbury factory - it had been a 'dream' of mine for a long time. I had read that you could no longer have a tour of the factory, but I was still a little disappointed with the whole experience. We drove ourselves (we have a hire car)... More

I agree with some reviewers, visiting the Factory its all you get to buy its Chocolates (which is much cheaper then the retail). I was hoping for a tour around the factory, but no you wont get that :p.. A little disappointing. Not to forget a small fee its needed to get in. Seriously not worth it.

fantastic highly recommend very short drive from Hobart heaps of discounted chocolate and it must be good as the checkout lady was packing chocolate and eating it with the same hand so I probably wouldn't purchase the broken easter egg bags, I had to buy a extra carry on luggage bag to bring our chocolate home.

Visit to Cadbury is really about buying chocolate. There is a gold coin donation for entry and once in you can watch a video and see a demonstration and then buy buy buy! If you are in the area good to get some chocy but unfortunately you can no longer see the production so its not really about a visit... More
