"A sweet treat" Kathryn J Leehy See on Map


  • Enjoy a serene cruise down the Derwent River
  • A trip to the Cadbury Chocolate Factory makes this the sweetest tour in town


This tour offers sweets and scenery in equal proportion.

Enjoy a tour of the Cadbury Chocolate Factory's visitor interpretation centre, where you’ll learn about the history of the company and its tireless pursuit of chocolate perfection.

You’ll feel like you’ve been given the key to Willie Wonka’s workshop when you walk through this wonderland of confections and sample its creations.

Take a peaceful 30-40 minutes cruise back to Hobart on the placid waters of the Derwent River, which has been the lifeblood of the area since the first British ship washed ashore in 1804.

Tall oaks clad the riverbank and spectral mountains beckon in the distance. Take out your camera to capture magnificent panoramas.


The tour starts from Gray Line Terminal, Brooke Street Pier. Hotel pick-up can also be arranged prior to the start of the tour (subject to availability).

Board an air-conditioned coach and set out on this Cadbury Chocolate Factory tour with river cruise. There will be English narrated commentary on board.

Drive to the Cadbury Chocolate Factory visitor interpretation centre for a guided tour, where you’ll learn about the meticulous process of making chocolates and the history of the world’s largest confectionary manufacturer.

There’ll be free chocolate samples to enjoy and ample time to purchase discount sweets at the Cadbury souvenir shop.

Re-board your coach and head to the banks of the Derwent River, where you’ll board a return cruise to Hobart.

Take in the diverse coastline during this 30-40 minutes cruise, watching rugged wilderness give way to small settlements. Sip on complementary tea while your eyes drink in the scenery.

Cruise under the spectacular Tasman Bridge, a massive concrete overpass that extends more than 4500 feet across the Derwent.

Return to the Ferry Terminal in Sullivan’s Cove, the birthplace of Hobart.

You will be dropped off at the starting point of the tour at 12:0noon.

  • A sweet treat

    Everything worked like clock work. We were picked up on time. Our trip on the coach to Cadburys was pleasant. Demonstration was informative and boat trip okay....
