The best gelato bars in town!

This is the best gelato bars I've ever had! So worth it to spend time for a gelato bar in cairns! Very different from others! You should go there and write something on the wall as i did before!!

Reading previous TripAdvisor posting, I had high expectations of this place. Although it didn't disappoint, I was hoping for more. The variety of flavors were the same with most gelato places around area, but they did taste fresher. Not my absolute favorite place but it's not bad as a second alternative.

My wife and I made several trips to this gelato shop. So many different flavors. You can tell they used fresh ingredients. The Baileys was my favorite.

nice, small and friendly gelato store with seating outside just off the crazy busy esplanade. the owner makes up the gelato and sorbet into ice pops on sticks (as well as cones and tubs like all the other ice creamers in town) which you can then dip in chocolate and coat in sprinkles of your choice. cool idea. my daughter...

Try the fruit bars they are like eating the fruit itself, plus in the Cairns weather great feeling. Worth it, we had lychee, passion fruit and lemon.

This is a small homemade ice cream store in the city of cairns and it has some great flavors you must try! From dragon fruit to soursop, these sorbets were delicious. Each tub had 2kg of real fruit apparently! Definitely worth a visit for a treat in the hot cairns weather.

Best gelato we had for a long time since coming to Australia from Europe. Friendly service too. We will be back and hope they will open a shop in Brisbane too one day.

I am a local and have had ice cream from most places in Cairns. To me Gelocchio is the best. The staff are friendly and importantly, the ice cream is of really good quality. Very nice.
