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.
Visitors today find the old cheese factory transformed into a large emporium style chocolate and confectionery factory shop.

Yes! Don’t Grow Up! It’s a Trap! We saw these prints on a shirt for kids. Danger was at the back.
I admit! Adulting is kinda hard. And I just wish sometimes that I am back to being a kid. Don’t you? I mean, I reckon that when one becomes a grown up, naturally, we want to become more responsible. As well as more in control and careful with our actions. What is more challenging is – when you’re a grown up, you have bills to pay!
So, to remind us once again on how great is it to be kids, here are statements from the kids themselves: Continue reading
