Try the fruit bars!

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.

A smallish (say 20) selection of very well prepared gelatos ad sorbets. Reasonably priced, and friendly service. Recommend!

Went with a friend and got the gelato on a stick. Super yummy and even better with an entertainment book voucher.
