My friends and I stood in line for about ten minutes (to me it seems it is always popular as I went back the day after my initial visit and once again it was a long line) and once we got to the front we were told they didn't do 'taste testers'... I found that ridiculous to be honest, it... More

Tasting the local icecream is a must-do for us when travelling. Shakes matches it with anywhere else we've been for quality and value. We did try the other icecream in town, but Shakes won hands down and received a daily visit from us during our stay in Port Douglas.

We loved this place. You could choose from icecream or gelato or sorbet. I had mango, Yum. Lots of choice, very difficult to choose. Nice and clean.

Really tasty gelati with a great selection of flavours and options. Good value for money and appears to be a favourite in Port Douglas. Only problem was that I had trouble trying to work out which flavours to have as there were so many choices. Nice!

We have been going to Port Douglas for 15 years. Ever since Shakes came on the scene it has been our favourite ice cream place ever. We walk up most evenings to get an ice cream treat. The service is fantastic and the ice creams and sorbets are beautiful. My favourite has to be the burnt caramel. Family favourites include... More

We loved Shakes, we had ice cream here 3 times and several times last year. My favourite is the 'Choc Madness Sundae' with whipped cream. Its service with a smile and a great choice of ice cream flavors, will definitely be back!

Put this on your list who doesn't want an ice cream and a good one at that whilst holidaying in Port Douglas? Love supporting the locals and the owners were more than helpful and had a good sense of humour. Best. Icecream. Ever!

Although the shop itself is quite nice, this gelato store is still ordinary. They offer a variety of products but the flavours we tried -white choc, burnt toffee and sweet caramel were unimpressive. I would have rathered popping into Coles down the road and saved my money

The ice cream and smoothies I've ever had. Amazing service. The mocha chip and the white chocolate are to die for! A must-visit when in Port Douglas :)
