Circumnavigating Australia — Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery


Yarra Valley orchard

Today I’m going to show you an absolutely enchanting chocolate shop that produces some truly great chocolates. Here, deep within the Yarra Valley, not far from Yarra Glen in the state of Victoria, is Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. This shop is massive!

Our tour guide informed us that this is a weekend destination for families, and I could see why. It’s like a candy shop for kids. Oh, wait. It is a candy shop for kids . . . and adults.

Easter was approaching, so you just know there were chocolate Easter bunnies on hand:

You can see the factory portion of the shop behind the bunnies above. It was quite an operation. And the chocolates? Yes, they were as good as they looked. Ursula and I purchased quite the assortment thinking we might take some back to Radiance of the Seas, but they didn’t survive long enough to reach the exit.

The variety seemed nearly limitless:

So, we’d better head on back outside before more poundage packs the periphery. One last look at the surrounding sights:
