Delicious treat!

My husband and I stopped twice here for ice cream and sorbet while in Port Douglas. There were many flavors and I really liked the little cups they had, that I could re-wash and re-use. Definitely recommend.

Could not walk passed without getting something. Try the Mango shake with gelato but hubby said the passion fruit shake was just heavenly.

The gelato was so yummy that we couldn't stop eating it. Perfect on a hot sunny day. Would definitely go back again if we're in Port Douglas.

This was walking distance from our hotel. It was a nightly trip to purchase an iced coffee. To be honest I never tried any of their gelati. Tried their ice coffee and I was hooked.

Very nice ice cream offered at this ice cream bar. Expect to pay tourist prices being a tourist town though. Lovely way to cool down in the heat
