Took my mother on a special get away for a long weekend and we found a brochure for this place. As this was just down the road from our resort we visited on the last day on our way home. What a lovely surprise. Quaint, pleasant and a little old fashioned. So interesting to see the candies being made and... More

There are not many places that you can return to time and time again and love it each time. Carobana is one of them. Once again outstanding customer service from Jean, Trish, Ken and Ian. So good to see familiar faces and to treat ourselves to their brilliant product range. Our family loves Carobana and a visit to Coffs would... More

We took the family to The Carobana Chocolate Factory whilst holidaying at Coffs Harbour and it was a wonderful experience for an hour and a half. We watched as the honeycomb was made and then tasted the free off cuts, on venturing further we saw them making Easter products, amazing, then on the other side of the factory was the... More

I've been visiting Carobana since I was a kid and it never disappoints. The staff that run the factory are always friendly and very proud of their product. If you can catch the honeycomb making, its really interesting. There's delicious free samples and the carob is so yummy, I have to resist stocking up because I love it!

We found the Carobana Chocolate Factory to be a warm and wonderful place for the kids to learn about carob and get up close and see chocolate making in action. Our son said 'It was amazing, people kept popping out of doors and giving us free chocolates mum!' The staff were welcoming and incredibly enthusiastic about their factory. There was... More

Our family decided to stop here, we had missed the demonstration for the day but the lady was more than helpful and allowed us to watch an 8 minute dvd about the factory and how it operates and what it makes, very interesting. This was a great place and the product was delicious and reasonably priced. (Brought a lot) would... More

The factory looks like a store in 1990s. This makes it surprisingly peaceful to browse through the factory, especially when visitors can walk into the kitchen and watch honeycomb making process. Must try dried banana coated with carob!

Free entry and tastings. Family run attraction where you can literally see the chocolate being made. Was once a banana drying factory, hence the name. Very friendly staff full of interesting information - even created a short video to watch on the process. Treats were all delicious too!
