A visit to the House of Anvers is a tradition for some Tasmanian tourists who return to the island state each year for their annual holiday. We shared Lynn Gorman’s photos and thoughts about the boutique chocolate factory in Latrobe, and she’s no doubt inspired many others to adopt her recommendations. As if you need any more encouragement, today we’re sharing mouth-watering photos from Dan Fellow.
House of Anvers: Fine Chocolates of Tasmania

We mentioned our Mothers Day visit to the House of Anvers way back in May 2010 when we first started Think Tasmania. Obviously we thought sampling chocolate should be high on the list of things to do when you arrive in Devonport via the Spirit of Tasmania.
It was a meeting with Ben Milbourne at the Baaa Bar of The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in Hobart that prompted this current article. Besides his delightful company, Ben shared some special, rare chocolate from Peru; and it was goooooooood. The House of Anvers has exclusive rights to distribute the delicacy in Australia. That tasting was enough to spark the cravings for another sample of all things D’Anvers!
If you have a collection of photos and a relevant story to accompany them, please contact Think Tasmania. We love to share new and interesting material with all our readers via the website, newsletter and social media.
