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!

We tried three flavours on three separate occasions and all were refreshing and delicious. First was the mango and passion fruit on a stick. Next was dragon fruit and last was hazelnut. Gelato is smoother in the cup than on the stick. Great, friendly service and excellent gelato! Good location too.

We found this little place on our last day in Cairns. That said, we came back 3(!) times for more! Each time getting better and better. Sorbet is made 100% fresh fruit and can be dipped in various chocolate and topped with nuts.

I walked in not too sure about whether or not I wanted an ice cream (I was with some friends of mine met in Cairns) then the owner (the same person showed in some picture) made me try the lemon and the dragon fruit flavours: amazing!

My family of 8 came today to purchase some gelato after dinner. We went to Gelocchio the day before and returned to try some different flavors. My sister was the 7th person to order and apologized to the lady for being indecisive and ask for 3rd tasting. The lady working rudely said "it's like going to an Italian restaurant and... More

I used to live in Cairns and have tried every gelati shop in the town centre. This place is absolutely the best. The owners are lovely and are actually originally from Italy. Great range of flavours and generous servings. All the flavours are good but chocolate, mango or coconut are definitely my favourites!
