Took a trip down to Denmark recently and was delighted to find some white chocolate and ginger tarts available. I’ve tried quite a few of the chocolates also and each one is incredibly unique and delicious. Couldn’t recommend this place more! A must stop for...More

Shop was easy to miss with very little signage. Visited after looking at the website and confirming opening hours only to discover that it was closed. Disappointing when information provided is misleading and given that it was the heart of the tourist season.More

Found while visiting the info centre, an amazing little store with probably the best chocolates we have tried (including Margaret River, Tasmania etc.) A must see.

In the visitor centre in Denmark you find the most amazing chocolatier, his dark chocolates are exquisite. You must try salted caramel and jelly sandwich in particular! Well worth a visit, great for a gift or a treat for yourself.

We found John Wade's shop a few years ago down by the bridge - it was a revelation - the highest quality hand-made chocolates, beautifully packaged. Great pressies and great to scoff! As well as 'traditional' collections, he has created specifically Western Australian flavour centres...More

The most amazing chocolates....... allow each extraordinary layer melts in your mouth. I always buy them when I visit Denmark. Try the Australian bush flavours.
