WOW!!! Best gelato in Cairns! Awesome flavors. Fresh and natural ingredients! The gelato and sorbets are the best I have ever tasted! If you visit Cairns, you MUST take ice cream at GELOCCHIO!

We tried three flavours on three separate occasions and all were refreshing and delicious. First was the mango and passion fruit on a stick. Next was dragon fruit and last was hazelnut. Gelato is smoother in the cup than on the stick. Great, friendly service...More

We found this little place on our last day in Cairns. That said, we came back 3(!) times for more! Each time getting better and better. Sorbet is made 100% fresh fruit and can be dipped in various chocolate and topped with nuts.

Delicious organic gelato. Loved the vast selection of stick ice creams. Range includes traditional flavours as well as exotic tropical fruit eg soursop and dragonfruit. Ended up having 3 different flavours before we could tear ourselves away. Wish this was my local gelato shop.
