The Attractions at the Phillip Island Chocolate Factory

Panny’s World of Chocolate, also known as Phillip Island’s Chocolate Factory, lets you learn about how chocolate is made and have you drooling with a number quirkier attractions and activities.  Stroll through the factory and come across a number of these unforgettable activities.

  • Worlds Largest Chocolate Waterfall

    Hear the rushing roar of chocolate cascading down the world’s largest-ever chocolate waterfall, with 400 kilograms of chocolate flowing down every 3 minutes!

  • Enjoy the Chocolate Village

    Be the train driver in a village completely made out of chocolate, driving through the chocolate homes, shops, trains, with candy canes and lolly decorations scattered about the village.

  • The Chocolate Advertisements

    You can explore the displays of vintage chocolate advertisements if history is your thing, and you can learn everything you need to know about the chocolate-making process right from the bean to the bar. Here you can also learn about the factory’s beginning, asking the staff members on the history while you are at it!

  • Chocolate David

    Elsewhere, you can marvel at the statue of David made completely out of chocolate that is a complete replicate of Michelangelo’s Statue of David!

  • One Tonne Chocolate Block

    Take the challenge and see if you and your friends can lift the one-tonne chocolate block-but fair warning, it isn’t as easy as it looks!

  • The Chocolate Shop

    If you want to take a little slice of this chocolate heaven home with you, head towards the factory’s on-site shop. Here, you can pick up a range of chocolate treats that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. And, before you leave, kick back and relax in the café, where you can have a little more chocolate along with a hot drink to fuel your next adventure. There is even a cafe next door, offering a range of chocolate treats to go with your coffee to end your adventure perfectly!

The Phillip Island Chocolate Factory really is a treat for all the senses and all the family. Whether you’re on the hunt for some tasty chocs to try or simply want to learn more about this fascinating craft, hotfoot it to the factory for all of this and more.
