Choc Travel : Kids dreams come true at the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie

Alison Campbell

Thinking about heading south during the school holidays? Don’t go past this sweet new destination experience…..the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery on Victoria’s iconic Great Ocean Road.

Ian and Leanne Neeland had a Willy Wonka-like dream to build a chocolate factory…..and late last year they made every Aussie child’s dream come true, doing just that with their Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery.

The couple recognised a gap in the market in the wineries regions, and plugged it with chocolate. "They (wineries regions) already have a tourism component  … and already have people visiting them and there is a gap for family friendly attractions," Neeland says. "You can only take your kids to so many wineries." 

Around an hour from Melbourne, the chocolaterie has a firm family focus, so if you’ve got the kids in tow you’re in for a treat. Their weekly Junior Chocolatier classes – 45 minute hands on workshops for 6-12 year olds - also run right through the school holidays…little chef’s delight with their own hat and apron, graduation certificate plus take home chocolate creations.

And while the kids are knee deep in chocolate, big people can enjoy the myriad of free tastings, with over 250 milk, dark and white chocolate pastilles to choose from. The product range features ingredients hand picked from their own kitchen garden and emerging orchard. Their collection of over 7000 truffles uses cocoa sourced from eight different regions around the world. If that’s not enough to tempt you, they also offer free tastings from their extensive range of house made icecreams and sorbets.

What’s not to love?

The Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery is open 7 days a week, every day except Christmas. So put it on your bucket list.
