Our Visit to Melbas Chocolate Factory in Woodside South Australia

Melba’s Chocolate Factory is a ‘working’ tourism factory located in a heritage listed complex at 22 Henry St, Woodside in the Adelaide Hills. ‘Melba’s’ got its name from the restaurant that the owners of the choc factory used to own.

It is a heritage site because this place used to be Woodside Farmers Union’s factory which had closed in 1977. For 58 years since 1919, this site was famous worldwide for the cheese, butter, margarine and small goods produced by the South Australian farmers. However, this activity ceased in 1976. Yet, after fourteen years of abandon and neglect, Melba’s took over the former cheese factory building in 1st of July 1990.
