Satisfy your sweet tooth with a visit to this Willy Wonka-esque country chocolate factory.

The Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory looks as if two towers — one made of brick and one of corrugated iron — were glued together like a giant gingerbread house.

The crew working tirelessly inside this converted flour mill, based 2.5 hours west of Canberra, create every twist on organic licorice you could imagine. To this mixed lolly bag, they add scoffable snacks like chocolate-coated cherries and coffee beans, plus speciality chocolate blocks adorned with nuts, fruits and candies.

Visiting this real-life Wonka factory to stockpile goodies is a treat in itself, but you can also create your own rocky road and giant chocolate freckles in hands-on workshops every Monday (simply turn up from 9am–3pm).
