Great selection of gelato and sorbet, much needed in the heat of Cairns in summertime! The popsicle style sorbets were amazing as well, definitely worth a try.

I have been living in Cairns for a year now, and the weather definitely suits having ice cream and gelato. There are many ice cream shops on Aplin Street, but Gelocchio stands out as being the only one with ice blocks and chocolate dipped ice blocks. You can even have extra nuts on the chocolate! They also have gelato which... More

I had a raspberry lemonade iceblock was yum! Even though we didnt, you could choose your icecream/iceblock flavour dip it in a chocolate (dark/milk/white) and then dip it in a topping (sprinkles) such a great idea!

My girlfriend and I live in Cairns and we cannot spend one week without going to Gelocchio. We are definitely addicted to their gelato! For summer time, we love so much the "Soursop" which is the best refreshing flavour with this particular texture, and the "Pistacchio" which is incredibly tasty... Guys, icecream lovers, I truly recommend to go to Gelocchio,... More

I was travelling in Cairns for 5 nights and I always walk pass by the shop everyday but I didn't try it until my last day in Cairns, because I'm really curious with the Gelato when I saw a lot of people buy it. So I heading inside the store and the shopkeeper greet me politely like "how are you... More

We have many ice cream parlours here in Cairns, and as a local I know, nobody beats the ice cream from our Gelocchio Shop. Their hand made, with the best ingredients on the market, product is just the best in town. The passion they apply to producing the ice cream is just superb and outstanding. It's my favourite shop in... More

I spent the day exploring Cairns and was hot and sticky. I walked past a few gelato stands to go to Gelocchio (I'd heard good things) and I'm so glad I did! It was hard to pick, but I ended up choosing dragonfruit and pistachio gelatos in a waffle cone. The lovely owner (?) piled in a generous amount for... More

I had the mango on a stick then went back the following night for a dragon fruit gelato in a cup. Definatly recommend this place for everyone and anyone who... More
