I was very excited to see how Cadbury chocolate is made in the factory. Sadly they do not actually let you in to the factory. They give you a short story about how it is made in a from room near the souvenirs but that is all.

There are no longer any tours of the site due to OH&S regulations but the half hour talk by Shirley about how they make the chocolate was very informative and she was good value. It costs a couple of gold coins to get in but the "goody bag" you are then handed covers that and probably more. The shop has... More

We have been here before when you could actually do the chocolate tour. You now have the opportunity to now watch a video on how chocolate is made. Its interesting but not as good as before. You have the opportunity to buy chocolate at discount prices. There are the options or buying just single blocks, or multi packs of blocks... More

A very disappointing visit to the Cadbury Chocolate Factory today. As there are now no tours of the factory but a little seminar where they talk about how chocolate is made. The lady was lovely and sweet who gave the presentation but it was not that exciting. You get a little bag of chocolate, but as far as getting cheap... More

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
