Head into the Adelaide Hills this Christmas season and discover a magical place filled with chocolate, Christmas decorations and more.
This December Melba's Chocolates will be celebrating with twilight trading hours, giving you more time to visit their factory in Woodside, choose some delicious sugary gifts and still visit the Christmas lights in the iconic Lobethal.
Visit the factory where all sorts of yummy treats are produced (have you considered trying a Cow Pat or Sheep Nuts?), see how they're made and maybe even catch a glimpse of Father Christmas and get your face painted!
This year, to give back to the community, Melba's is partnering with Variety SA to support and ensure a bright Christmas for children affected by domestic violence in South Australia. Personalised baubles will be sold for $2 and visitors are invited to hang the baubles on the giant Melba's Christmas tree.
For a lot of South Australians, heading to Woodside and Melba's followed by Lobethal for the Christmas lights is a yearly tradition. Continue the tradition or start a new one by visiting the factory, buying some iconic South Australian food and support families in South Australia all at the same time.
Extended hours and Christmas celebrations will begin on 15 December and finish on 23 December 2018.
