If you love a sweet treat as much as we do then you’ll love this sweet tooth’s guide to the Swan Valley. Take a day out to explore this beautiful region and make sure to stop at each of these amazing spots to try some goodies.

The Margaret River Chocolate Company

One of the most popular destinations in the Swan Valley region is The Margaret River Chocolate Company. This delightful chocolate factory offers free entry and free chocolate tastings. You can even take a look through their viewing windows and watch all the chocolate products being made. Sit back and relax in their Chocolate Cafe where you can dine indoors or outdoors. If the weather is warm, their sun-deck offers a lovely view of the gardens and vines.

Breakfast and lunch is available every day of the week but if you’re only feeling snackish, try the delicious variety of cakes, desserts, chocolate fondues, drinks and chocolate themed goodies. Their sister company, Margaret River Providore, can be found on the same property and boasts an exceptional chocolate liqueur. However, if someone in the family prefers a savoury option, checkout their variety of award-winning wines, chutneys, preserves and olive oils.
