Get me to the Chocolaterie!
Victoria’s iconic Great Ocean Road has become even more irresistible with our sweet destination.
We’re just over an hour from Melbourne, twenty minutes from Geelong on the Great Ocean Road between Torquay and Anglesea. Entry is free and we’re open every day, except Christmas Day.
We are excited to welcome more and more visitors back to the Chocolaterie after an extremely difficult 280+ days of lockdown! We are so proud to share our stunning gardens and lush lawns that have been missing the sounds of laughter for too long. It means the world to us that so many loyal visitors can’t wait to join us again for a relaxed meal in the café, an ice cream on the lawn or some retail chocolate therapy.
We are following our tradition of not taking bookings in our café. If you are fully vaccinated, we welcome you to arrive and follow directions to the café and kindly show us your proof of vaccination for all people in your group 12 years and older. We are also required to check IDs so we can ensure visitors are not from Metro Melbourne or Mildura LGA. If we do not have a table available due to prevailing restrictions on seating numbers, we will take down your mobile number and you can wander around the showroom or grounds and we will call you when a table is available.
If you are not joining us for dining in the café, you are not required to be vaccinated but you must still check in with our QR code and wear a mask inside and outside at all times.We kindly ask that you are courteous and polite in assisting us with this process, as it’s a brave new world for us too.
Any questions, please phone us on 5263 1588 or [email protected]
