Melbourne Walks provides lanes tours of the city which pass many of them such as Haighs, Cacao, Koko Black, Laurent Patisserie, Chokolait Hub, Lindt, Chocolateria San Churro, Max Brenner, Cacao, David Jones and Ganache.
Monday to Fridays are the best opening times to visit chocolate shops as weekends are variable.
Melbourne’s love of chocolate was boosted by the rag to riches life of Melbourne’s Willy Wonka better known as Macpherson Robertson (1859-1945). He was the creator of MacRobertsons which invented Freddo Frog, Cherry Ripe, Old Gold, Milk Kisses, Columbines and other classics. His many philanthropic donations include MacRobertsons Girls High. His fascinating story holds a mirror to the Melbourne era from the Gold Rush to WWII.
