Live Giant Chocolate Sculpture

Local acclaimed artist Silvio Apponyi is BACK! He’s set to carve a wonderful Easter sculpture from GIANT blocks of delicious chocolate. You may remember our popular 10kg Chocolate Bilby and Hatching Chickens from last Easter, which were proudly displayed in our Toffee Room. We invite all to come and watch the magic unfold. Using chainsaws and axes, it’s a sight to behold.

Free Face Painting & Balloon Creations

Our resident Face Painter is back for another fun-filled Easter weekend. Face painting is free for the entire Easter long-weekend, so bring the kids and enjoy!

This year we’re adding even more fun for the family, with free balloon creations by our wonderful friend Nicole.

Face painting and balloons will be at the factory from 12pm to 4.30pm, Good Friday to Easter Monday.

Colouring-in Competition

The colouring-in competition will be running from the 19th April 2019 to 22nd April 2019, and will give children the opportunity to win one of three Giant Milk Chocolate Rabbits, valued at $50 each. It will be run by staff over the four days of Easter trading, with no entries accepted after the 22nd of April. Children will be encouraged to complete their entry at the factory and hand it back to staff to avoid confusion and ensure all are collected. Winners will be announced via email or phone on the Thursday the 25th of April. Good luck to all who enter!

Maxine’s Baked Potatoes

Besides activities for the whole family, we’ve got Maxine’s Baked Potatoes setting up shop on the grounds of our Woodside factory. They’ll be offering a large variety of food, from their famous Spuds to delicious nachos – yum!
