Gorge Chocolates: A Sweet Journey

Welcome to Gorge Chocolates, where we turn passion into delicious artistry. Nestled in the picturesque landscapes near the Great Ocean Road, Gorge Chocolates is more than just a store—it's a celebration of fine chocolate craftsmanship and unique alpaca souvenirs.


GORGE Chocolates was established in 2004 in the picturesque countryside of Cooriemungle, a small rural area near the iconic Twelve Apostles, a major tourist attraction on the Great Ocean Road. This strategic location attracts both locals and tourists. What began as a modest venture quickly grew into a beloved business appreciated by the community and visitors alike.


GORGE Chocolates envisioned creating high-quality handmade chocolates using Belgian Chocolate, a vision that continues to define the store.

Gorge Chocolates The Chocolate Alpaca is a proud member of the 12 Apostles Food Artisan Gourmet Trail ( This affiliation highlights their commitment to offering a gourmet experience for both locals and tourists visiting the Great Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles.

In 2019, Ian and Angela rebranded the business to “Gorge Chocolates Home of the Chocolate Alpaca,” reflecting its expanded offerings and unique charm. The property is now home to Surilana Alpacas.

Visitors can enjoy not only delicious chocolate, hot chocolate, and coffee but also views of alpaca feeds. The store offers a wide range of alpaca products made from their super-soft fleece, including clothing, giftware, bedding, and carpets. It also offers variety of local produce and our very own The Big Nuts. The store also offers to the visitor for accommodation for the local and tourist.  

Make sure to include Gorge Chocolates as a destination on your trip to the Great Ocean Road for an unforgettable gourmet and alpaca experience.
