Basically when you rock jp its pot luck as to what flavours they have on hand, and they are often all 4 in one cup, so don't be surprised. This is another cash only premises, which to be honest is a pain, but as long as you have $6 per cup you'll be fine. Glad to see the used metal... More

Wonderful unusual flavours, four flavours in one tub. The coconut is superb and the kids had ice blocks which were fantastic, Worth a stop, lovely fruit orchard. Very friendly.

Pop into this little piece of paradise for some scoops of locally made fruit flavoured goodness. We had walttleseed, mango, soursop and passionfruit in our tubs ($6.50 each) which were amazing. It's a lovely setting, so take some time for a treat and visit!

Really enjoyed all the flavours, great setting and lovely surroundings. Interesting information about the fruits used. Worth the stop off of traveling to the Daintree area.

Great flavours to choose from, and they actually give you all flavours in one tub! The ice cream was delicious and the complimentary walk through the orchards was cool to do as well.

An artisan ice cream producer tucked away in Daintree providing a welcome afternoon break from either the gorge or the rainforest tours. Some unusual and exotic flavours not all of which will be known (or necessarily popular) with European tastes. However a great taste of local cuisine and introduction to some of the local fruits. One drawback is you get... More

We stopped here toward the end of our day tour. Loved the fresh flavors of ice cream and the ability to get the combo cup so I didn't have to choose just one flavor. The location isn't much but there are toilets and the surrounding orchards are pretty!

We chose this over the alternative ice creamery as we were told this is the original. However the overall experience is a bit disappointing - just a shackfront down a road sadly in need of repair.

Ice cream with a difference! We specialise in exotic tropical fruit ice cream with most of our fruit grown on site.

We encourage you to walk around the property and offer a Self Guided Guided Orchard Map to teach you a bit about the different fruit trees we grow. Disclaimer: We do not sell ordinary flavours (e.g vanilla) - we are all about helping visitors explore the weird and wonderful world of exotic fruit ice cream!
