It's only a matter of time before Cadbury chocolate will be imported into this country like everything else. There is no longer a tour, just a lovely lady who's been working for Cadbury for probably a century telling you about how Cadbury has less and less connection with Australia. You are shown some plastic boxed of the ingredients of what... More

Because I love Cadbury chocolates, I thought a tour of their factory would be interesting. Wrong! You pay an entry fee simply to watch a video of the production process, and then you get to go their gift shop, which is amazingly well-stocked with every sort of Cadbury chocolate. The chocolates were relatively inexpensive, compared to typical U.S. prices, so... More

After attending a very disappointing Anvel's Chocolate factory, we did not expect much when visiting Cadbury's chocolate factory. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who advised us that it was free entry due to a community promotion. We were given a small chocolate to sample which was very nice and were asked to wait until 11.30 to watch... More

We didn't see ANYTHING other than walking thru the halls and watching videos of what was supposed to be happening. In addition to the videos, the walls were covered with Cadbury ads. If this is a PR tour then they should do it for free! Actually, I wouldn't even waste my time if was FREE Every section was "closed" or... More

What a disappointment, we paid $4 each for entry, okay not an expensive entry but entry to what! We received a white bag containing a few chocolates, not even a Cadbury logo on the bag, a screen to view the history of Cadbury and a very boring shop with little stock and considering how close we are to Easter we...

Cant believe people bag this place. Long time ago they used to do a great tour but sadly no more. But when you enter a nice lady asks if you would like to see the presentation about the making process for a gold coin donation which is donation to charity. We didn't do the presentation but went into the shop... More

To those put off by earlier reviews, do not discard. We visited recently and enjoyed the experience. We thought the chocolates on sale were of value and the conference with the employees on the making of the chocolates was interesting. To learn the back ground and history of Cadbury's added to our education. Surely some visitors had forgotten the free... More

Don't expect a tour of the factory, that doesn't happen anymore. But you can still fill up the baskets and listen to the staff describe the process of chocolate making. No chance of falling in the chocolate river here!
