A TRULY UNIQUE TASTING EXPERIENCE

Open your mind and your mouth to the flavours of the rainforest.

It’s ice cream like you’ve never had it before, in the heart of the oldest rainforest in the world.

Ice cream, gelatos and sorbets are handmade on site using classic artisan methods, and we work in harmony with our surrounds.

Our exotic fruit organically grown and farmed in our orchard adds a tropical twist to a traditional dessert.

OUR SIGNATURE CUP

Our ice cream is served in our Signature Cup, featuring four unique, fresh flavours. These change daily based on what fruit trees are in season, and what tastes best!

We feel that providing ice cream in this way delivers the best taste experience for every palate. We encourage you to open your mind and your mouth to the weird and wonderful world of exotic fruit ice cream, gelatos and sorbets.

WHY WE CHOOSE

We do things a little differently up here!

Ice cream is served in our signature cup, featuring four unique tropical flavours. These change daily depending on what’s in season and complimentary flavours. 

Serving ice cream in this way affords you the best value for money (4 scoops is $7.50) as well as encouraging you to try something new.

We find that everyone has their own favourite, and the novelty of trying so many unique flavours creates a fun and memorable tasting experience.

THE WEIRD & THE WONDERFUL

Taste the rainforest and savour a range of new flavours and textures.

Meet the heroes of our exotic fruit orchard.

ORGANICALLY GROWN FRUIT

We source the heroes of our desserts from our tropical fruit orchard

Growing our own fruit for the past 35 years has led to the cultivation of 15 different exotic species. This means we use no premix powders, artificial sweeteners or dairy mixes. Each has it’s own deliciously delectable flavour, that will surprise and delight your palate.

  • Fantastic flavours! Beautiful orchard and great staff.

    5 star review  Your black sapote ice cream is LEGENDARY. I was trying to work out what the flavour reminded of - then I realised it's very similar to an Indonesian dessert I had when I was a kid, with avocados and chocolate syrup. I'm back at home now and I still occasionally think about your black sapote ice cream when I'm hungry for something sweet. I will be back for more!

    5 star review  By far the most flavoursome icecream I've ever eaten and the owners are such lovely and friendly people. I'd recommend that everyone in the area go and give it a go.

  • 4 star review  We visited you only for a short time, however, the ice cream was divine I could quite easily have had 2 or 3 cups - if you are to visit The Daintree a stop at Daintree Ice Cream Company is a must to stop at and enjoy their great products. Hopefully we'll return. ��

    AVOID AT ALL COST. No clear parking zones. Had one guy just block me in goes for a walk. I wait in line. Listen to their story 5 times and what was on offer that day then Finaly my turn to be served. I started telling the lady what I'd like to be rudely told I had to listen AGAIN what's on offer by someone else. I explained already and on a dead line have to go get a very rude response. Walked away and one lady tells me on way out best decision as her ice cream tasted horrible. I ended up at the one down the road. So much nicer staff and better option Glad I ended up their instead. In short AVOID

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM

      Totally worth a visit. I had the tasting cup which had the 5 exotic flavours of the day - all delicious! You're allowed to walk around the orchard too and check out the trees/plants where the fruit has been harvested from.
