If you enjoy chocolate, then this is the place to visit. We also had a tour of the factory where they hand finish all the chocolate. Delicious experience.

Had some delicious gourmet chocolates here at Haigh's Chocolates, a South Australian icon.. However, the original reason for the name happened to be a the Gilded Bee aloft the iconic "Beehive corner".

This building is in a very prominent location at the corner of Rundle Mall. It is beautiful to look at and much more importantly, there is a fabulous chocolate shop downstairs!

It's probably not worth going out of your way for but if you're in the area, take a look up at this piece of architecture.

The beehinve building is a beautiful old building. well worth a visit at the start of the Rundle Mall shopping strip. It has a chocolate shop selling tasty chocolate and is well worth visiting when in Adelaide.
