Owner description: At The Margaret River Chocolate Company we're mad about chocolate! With factories in both the Margaret River and Swan Valley wine regions of Western Australia and a concept store in Perth City, we have been making award-winning chocolate products since 1999. All three sites provide a fascinating insight into the world of chocolate, with free chocolate tastings and interactive displays, with the two factories also providing viewing windows to watch the chocolate products being made. The Margaret River Chocolate Company makes and sells a mouth-watering range of chocolate bars, chocolate coated delights, hand made truffles, novelty chocolates, chocolate sauces and much more. Both chocolate factories are open from 9am-5pm every day of the year except Christmas Day, while trading hours at the Perth City store mirror those of other city-based retailers.

“Nice gimmick, extremely expensive”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Beautiful simple grounds outside, then inside to a large warehouse looking area with very high roof etc. Wall to wall, asiles and asiles of chocolate goodies. A chocolate lover would just about faint in happiness! Anyone else would faint from the prices!!! The coffee spot at the back of the place is also a little expensive, but it would be a nice place to stop and have a rest and coffee and delicious expensive chocolate on the way home. Admittedly it is of course divine tasting stuff... But at $15 for one block of plain chocolate...Are you kidding? We got a mini-block for our chOcolate loving dad, and just enjoyed a small sample. Skincare product prices were bad too, may as well go to the body shop. Gift packs were $$$ too. Anyway you get my point. Nice atmosphere, quality chocolate, pay through the teeth

“Must visit if you have children”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

This was our second visit here. Apart from the free samplings of white, milk and dark chocolate buttons, there was also a wide selection of chocolates on sale. There was also a variety of jams, honey and oils as well as skin care products. There was a cafe at the back serving coffees, chocolate drinks and ice cream. They have also opened a winery and providore down the road from the factory but we did not have the time to visit it. Well worth a visit and a change from the wineries and breweries in the region.

“Chocolate Heaven”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

Our friends who live in Perth took us to the Margaret River Chocolate Co. They were raving about this place and their kids were very excited to be making a return visit. When you walk into the large showroom you are greeted by 3 large bowls on the counter of dark, milk and white chocolate drops to sample.

They have a huge range of chocolate to choose from including orange, peppermint, macadamia, rocky road, sauces just to name a few. They also have a wide selection of gourmet chocolates to suit everyone's taste.

A great place to grab some edible souvenirs for family and friends and maybe a little something for yourself. They have a lovely coffee shop with a selection of biscuits and cakes and icecream for the kids.
