Cadbury is located at suburban Claremont approximately 12 kilometres north of the city of Hobart. At the Cadbury visitor centre, an access fee of AUD7.50 per adult (children AUD4) entitles you to view an informative DVD in a theatrette, where you can talk to guides about the chocolate-making process. At the end of the viewing, each person will receive a small gift of chocolates and be invited to relax in the café and browse the great range of gifts, t-shirts, souvenirs and, of course, chocolates. Tours of factory itself no longer operate.
The centre is open for half-hour visits from 0900 to 1400 weekdays – bookings are not essential but advisable (ring 1800 627 367). Cadbury is not open on weekends, public holidays or during factory shutdowns. Factory shutdowns happen around the Easter period and from December to January.
