After morning pick up from your Hobart hotel, travel in a comfortable coach to the Cadbury chocolate factory. Along the way, pass local landmarks including Constitution Dock and the ABC buildings – site of Hobart’s original sandstone railway station. Catch a glimpse of the Government House, which is the official residence of the Governor of Tasmania, then see Derwent Entertainment Centre, Tasmania’s largest indoor arena and events venue.

When you arrive at the Claremont Cadbury Interpretation Centre, the local staff greets you with a goodie bag of chocolates then shows you to a seated area for a presentation about Cadbury chocolates. A short video shows the chocolate making process in the nearby factory, which is no longer open for tours due to new health and safety regulations.

Marvel as you witness the raw chocolate transform into delicious treats, then taste some of the raw ingredients that go into the chocolate as well as the final product. Learn fun facts from your guide and browse exhibits about the history of Cadbury chocolate, which was established in 1922 in Australia.

After your presentation, have time to browse the retail shop and try more samples. A range of specialty chocolates and all-time favorites are available for purchase, with some great discounts on offer. For a truly Australian treat, try the Cherry Ripe bar, which has been made in Australia since 1924.

When you have wrapped up your Cadbury tour, enjoy a relaxing cruise along the scenic Derwent River, traveling from Moorilla Winery to Hobart. Snack on complimentary morning tea as you take in stunning views of the Museum of Old and New Art, Mt Wellington, plus scenic bays and riverfront land, before disembarking at Brooke Street Pier near Battery Point—one of Tasmania's most desirable addresses.

Please note: Tour does not take you inside the actual factory, only access to the Cadbury chocolate factory visitor center is permitted

Great tour. Very informative. Plenty of cheap chocolates. River cruise a bit choppy due to the weather but worth it.
