Skip the rest, have the best.

Heard really good reviews in the community about Gelocchio so had to give it a go! It certainly was worth the hype! When in Cairns and have an ice-cream craving... or not..., this is certainly a go-to!

The best gelato in Cairns. In fact, the best gelato in Eastern Australia. The pistachio is delightful, as is the lemon. The macadamia is sublime, and the passion fruit to die for. Forget the rest in Cairns, just treat yourself at Gelocchio.

Every time I'm in cairns I have to go here every day and try a new flavour, the best ice cream in town hands down. The vanilla is gorgeous and the banana is too. Good service and love the trade hours. A little wander around the nightmarkets then grab an ice cream before heading back to the hotel. And day... More

It's the best ice cream in Cairns. Product are really fresh. There are a range of flavour that you can pick plus homemade maxibon & much more. I love the fact that they add some details on top of ice cream, for example with stracciatella they add chocolate on top. It is open every day from 10.30am til 10.30pm! So... More

Tried the gelato on a warm afternoon and found it so good we went back the same night for another serving. The gelato was so good that for the 7 days we were in Cairns that we had to have the gelato every day with so many flavours to choose from. A big thanks to Gelocchio for making our trip... More
