Wander the huge varieties of fruit trees whilst eating the ice cream. Don’t miss the tiny native bee hive tucked away around the back. Tasting dish of 4 current flavours their main offering, and very good it is too. Enough for 2 to share. Wattle seed, banana , black sapote and passion fruit. Yum. If you only visit one of the two in the Daintree, go to this one. It’s better ice cream, and you can try several at once.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a great review and choosing us as your preferred Cape Tribulation ice cream supplier.

The Orchard Walk is a great opportunity for our visitors to see the fruit trees where we harvest our fruit for our delicious ice cream. The native bee hive is also a favourite of mine. Aussie bees are pretty cute!

Not a fan of the Jackfruit. Black sapote, passiofruot and battle seed were delicious and the location is beautiful for a short stop

Hi Jemima,
Jackfruit is not for everyone but at least you can say you have tried it and it is always interesting to try new things; the wattleseed and black sapote are amazing together, one of my fave combos.
Thank you for enjoying your stop with us and taking the time to write us a great review.

Visiting the Daintree Ice Cream company is an interesting discovery of where the fruits come from that make the delicious ice creams on offer. We had the 4 flavour taster and they were all very tasty, once ice cream had been devoured we were offered a guide leaflet to the trees that provide the fruit for the ice-cream, very interesting

What a beautiful place to stop for a break, you can also take it away.
They have 4 different flavored per day and you get them all in a cup! The fresh flavours were wonderful straight from their orchard. Kids loved it and so did the adults. Worth the stop, and this is a cash only facilty

These quirky little fruit farm with its array of ice creams was a fantastic, the farm is beautiful and the home made ice creams were delightful. They must rely on their reputation to ensure most people stop on the way past, but they do ice cream and a comfort break really really well

Hi Paul,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a 5 star review. You are right, we do rely on word of mouth and reputation, built on the fantastic gelato and sorbet hand crafted on site. So please spread the word and tell everyone who is visiting the area to stop in for a great treat... let them know they can take a walk around our orchard too!

Thanks again
Narelle
