Hand made chocolates on an antique train
Lovingly restored, Platform 30

All Aboard - there is something magical about most chocolate shops and Platform 30 at Samford Village is no exception. Not dis-simliar to Alice on Wonderland, any adults will be required to duck down in order to enter the doorway of this classic restored red rattler. Children will just love any adventure involving chocolate or lollies.

All aboard the Samford Express

You can sit up the far end of the carriage on authentic railway seating and view all the chocolates, antique lighting and polished floor boards. Choose from a range of hand made chocolates of all flavors and shapes you can imagine, taste test a truffle or maybe purchase some gourmet powdered cocoa or a traditional gob-stopper lolly.

From peppermint leaves to caramel roses

If the idea of an antique Samford railway carriage being transformed into a boutique chocolate shop is remotely appealing, then a visit to Platform 30 is definitely in order. Combine this with the self guided walking tour, The Samford Valley Heritage Trail and you're in for a great day out in the country, not so far from Brisbane city centre.

Your Comment
I read this article and went out to see for myself. Very disappointed. The concept was great but where was the stock??? Not much choice, very sparse. Nothing any different to a myriad of chocolate shops in Brisbane. Save your petrol
