Highlights
    What to Expect
    Throughout your tour you will take a look at the fascinating 3,800 year history of cocoa, visit the tree nursery and a mature cocoa tree plantation, see the tiny orchid like flowers and ripe cocoa pods.

    Next, look at age old fermentation and drying techniques followed by a visual as you see the cocoa pod being opened and a tasting of the cocoa nibs.

    You'll also take part in some of the steps of making actual chocolate including a sampling and tasting session. The chocolate is Australian grown and made premium chocolate featuring several Pacific Island region varieties.

    Next you'll enjoy an Aussie farm lunch featuring local grass fed beef burgers BBQ’d to perfection and served with caramelized onion and a choice of condiments. (Vegetarian or gluten free option is available but MUST be pre-ordered at time of booking). Soft drinks and spring water are available to purchase on the day.  

    Please note, while on tour kids must be supervised at all times and no smoking is permitted. All walking is on level or very slightly sloping gravel or grass. Minimal fitness is all that is required.

    Charley’s is an all weather tour, at times this may mean slightly muddy conditions underfoot. However, this also means you can visit Charley’s when other tours may not be available.
