The Noosa Chocolate Factory

If you are a chocolate lover (and who isn’t?) put Noosa Chocolate Factory at the top of your to-do list when visiting the Sunshine Coast. Located in thriving Venture Drive, Noosaville, their beautiful new site boasts a retail store well-stocked with their handcrafted gourmet chocolate, a café serving hot and iced chocolates, quality coffees and mochas, as well as the bustling factory itself.

Browse the shelves, sample some treats, then while you sip on a decadent hot chocolate, watch the magic happen through the customer viewing window. It offers a unique opportunity to view the labour-intensive process of mixing, pouring, cutting and packaging their chocolate, all by hand. (Hot tip – the Oompa-Loompas like to start and finish early, so get in before 3pm to see the action.)

Or relax in the tropical outdoor area – think lush green lawns scattered with oversized cushions, palms swaying in the breeze, and a lush iced chocolate in hand… They are dog-friendly, so your furry friends are welcome to visit too.

The delectable range includes milk, dark, very dark, white and ruby chocolate, rustic chocolate slabs with fruit jellies, nuts, berries, honeycomb and brittle, as well as chocolate-coated nuts and berries, marshmallows, Turkish Delight and our famous Rocky Road – something to suit every palette.

The factory is open seven days with off-street parking, indoor and outdoor seating, and friendly, helpful staff. We can’t wait to see you!
