Great local gelato place. Try the salted caramel or pistachio. We were in town for a week and dropped by twice a day to get our fix :)

Tastiest ice-cream ever and the scoops were SO BIG! Definitely worth trying and enjoy the moment of ice-cream heaven. We tried the Himalayan Salted and the Peanut.

We are Italians, tried many ice creams in Italy and other countries, this Gelocchio is definitely worth a try. Better than Messina or any other (good) gelato you can find in Australia (Sydney, at least).

If you want the best Gelato outside of Italy, well this is the place! My husband and I go there at least once a week to get our fix.

I've visited Gelocchio three times now this holiday. The staff have been friendly and helpful, and the gelato is fantastic. The peanut-butter is easily the best I've tasted.

Cairns is an ideal place for gelato all year round. The folk at Gelocchio bring their skills from Italy and use the best local seasonal ingredients in creating Cairns' best gelato. Everything is wonderful and the proprieters bring more than a whiff of European elegance with them.
