“so yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We quickly stopped here on our way back to Cairns from Cape Tribulation. Ice cream is beautiful, got 4 flavours for $6. Great place to sit down for a treat if you pass it...

“More than just ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The icecream was delicious, the 4 flavours of the day were wattleseed (coffee flavour), raspberry, soursop and mango. It was a very welcome stop-off on a hot day. You get a scoop of all 4 icecreams for $6.

Also there's an orchard where you can see the fruit trees that they make the icecream from. Some of the exotic fruits are huge and I've never seen them before such as jackfruit.

The staff were helpful and informative and let us try jackfruit before it got made into icecream.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Loved the setting, friendly staff and yummy ice cream for a reasonable price! Grat for families to have a break and stretch and cool off in the shade of the fruit trees.

“Exotic Sweets with a View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Definitely the best views I've had while eating ice cream! The Daintree Ice Cream Company is located on an exotic fruit farm where they grow most of the fruits they use in their yummy creams. From what we gathered, they offer four flavors each day featuring flavors like black sapote, macadamia nut, soursop, and other local specialities. You won't get to choose your flavors as the pre-made cups come with a small scoop of each of the daily offerings for about $6. The ice creams we tried were mellow, mild, and nicely smooth and creamy. If you're curious about what they grow, there's a nice brochure describing each of the fruits they grow on the farm and a map of the trees. If you love ice cream and sampling local cuisine, this is well worth a stop on a hot day.

“Ice Cream!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

All the ice cream is made on site from locally grown fruits so not all the flavours were available due to the season. There were some interesting flavours such as wattle seed and surprisingly it was really nice. Nothing beats an icecream on a hot day!
