For me, it was the homemade popsicles that were mindblowingly fantastic. My favourites were strawberry (the seeds popped in my mouth!), chai latte and watermelon.

Coming from Vienna ( best icecream outside Italy in Europe) We fell in love with this place and the ice maker: Excellent icecream (passion fruit real fruit) and a family with a mission. The location is not perfect as you normally don't stroll by but just around the corner..

Everything you read here is 100% true. Their ice cream is packed with flavor and very different from other ice cream elsewhere. Can't wait to see you guys again in December!

From the moment i walked in i was blown away from the presentation of the ice cream and store to the greeting from the lovely gentleman. Had a mango on a stick mmmmm to die for. Identical to the stuff from italy. Had to go back the next night for another. Very good pricing and sizing. Highly recommend to everyone.

WOW!!! Best gelato in Cairns! Awesome flavors. Fresh and natural ingredients! The gelato and sorbets are the best I have ever tasted! If you visit Cairns, you MUST take ice cream at GELOCCHIO!
