MacRobertsonland

Jill Robertson

Macroberstonland tells the amazing rags to riches tale of Australia’s very own Willy Wonka, MacPherson Robertson. Mostly lost to history, the man behind some of Australia’s (and the world’s) favourite confectionery – including Freddo Frog, Cherry Ripe and Old Gold chocolate – was an eccentric self-made millionaire and generous philanthropist whose spirit reflected all the hopes and dreams of a young nation.

Jill Roberston (no relation!) shares the wonderful story of this remarkable character with warmth and wit, with just a little gossip thrown in for good measure.
