This is the second ice cream shop after you come off the ferry. We loved it. It is set on a tropical fruit orchard which grows quite exotic fruits which is what they make the ice cream from. You get a bowl of 5 flavours...More

This is a must do ice cream stop. It's about 10 minutes north of the Daintree Discovery Center. Its off the beaten path. It is phenomenal ice cream. We had waddle seed ice cream, sour drop, passion fruit and jack fruit and they were all...More

A visit to the Daintree must include this ice creamery. Flavoured with some familiar and some not-so-familiar tastes of Far North Queensland, the ice cream had to be tasted to be believed. Four flavours in a cup is definitely worth a try and so refreshing....More

We stopped in for some famous Daintree ice cream during a day trip to/from Cape Tribulation. Ice cream is my favourite food so I wasn't passing up the opportunity to try some of this fresh, local, seasonal delightfulness! $6.50 for four flavours was a bargain...More

If you are in this region a stop at this ice creamery is an essential stop. It was like bees around a honey pot for those on tour. I can thoroughly recommend the small tub with 4 scoops for those who enjoy their ice cream.

The icecream is very creamy and great in flavour. Probably one of the best icecream I had in Australia. The biggest highlight is the presentation and the people working there. You get to learn a lot about fruits you didn't know exist. Thank you very...More

They make their own ice cream and it is very good. You order just an ice cream and you get a sampler of 4 flavours that they've made that day. We enjoyed every flavour and it's a large serving. The texture of the ice cream...More

Ice cream with a difference! We specialise in exotic tropical fruit ice cream with most of our fruit grown on site. Try our famous 'sample cup' which features 4 delicious flavours that change daily and is guaranteed to include something you've never tried before. 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! Gluten/dairy free and vegan options available.
