Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery manufactures premium ICE-CREAM made from full-cream milk and pure cream, as well as SORBET (dairy free) using our fresh fruit grown here on the Tablelands. We also manufacture our own divine fresh FUDGE. Recently, we introduced a line of JAMS made here at the ice-creamery. And for those who prefer a savoury snack, try our BILTONG - just like beef jerky only better! At the Visitor Centre you can indulge in banana splits, waffles, home-made apple pies, Devonshire Teas, iced-coffees, milkshakes, a hot Jaques coffee. Alternatively, enjoy a cone/cup of ice-cream or sorbet - we have 21 flavours on display at any one time. Our Visitor Centre is fully fenced with acres of lawn for children to enjoy as well as supporting easy disability access. We also have a range of local products/giftware including Nucifora Tea, Jaques Coffee, Soapherb Soaps & Diffusers, Spicez, Sweet Buzz Honey and more.
