I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.

No need for a special occasion Just go
Easter. Mother's Day. Just washed your car. No need for an excuse.

How on Earth did I not know about the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery? A few months ago, I accidentally found it when I drove past on the way to Greta. No one I knew ever mentioned it to me or maybe they knew and wanted to keep it a secret. Well, I am not going to keep it a secret. You may already know about it and reading this may give you the impetuous to go back.

So today I went and I wasn't disappointed.

As I walked along the main entrance path, there were people enjoying ice-cream, coffees and of course chocolate.

Once inside, my eyes couldn't believe the amount of chocolate that was on offer for purchase. Hands reaching out for the perfect gift or taste temptation. I resisted that particular temptation and went straight through to the café for other chocolate temptations.

Yum, lollies.

I was seated at a window table which overlooked the grounds and hills. I perused the menu, which had a range of meals catering for all. As I made my way to the counter, as there is no table service, I changed my mind many times as I saw the offerings in front of other customers. I stuck to my initial choice.

While I waited I watched children playing whilst their parents rested on the green grass. Couples hand-in-hand meandering through the orchard enjoying the near-perfect weather.

My food was placed in front of me.

Waffle. Delicious.

Browsing the offerings of the chocolaterie, I took my time looking at the vast array of chocolates and lollies, gift suggestions and unique packaging.

Take a look at their website for classes; chocolate making, learn to make choux pastry, junior classes for 6-12 year old, and rocky road. Now what caught my attention is the Chocolate High Tea.

Within an hour's drive east of Melbourne, you can be in chocolate nirvana. Located on the edge of Yarra Glen.

I will be returning.

I will definitely be back. I've booked the Chocolate High Tea. That day can't come soon enough.
