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.

OUR ORCHARD

OUR DIFFERENCE

The Daintree is an ancient world full of natural wonders

We’re on a mission to make the best ice cream possible with only whole foods made from scratch.

We use local produce wherever possible, including Tablelands milk and Jersey cream, weighing out each ingredient one by one.

It is our responsibility to work in harmony with our surrounds, preserve important habitats and act as stewards for wildlife.

HOW IT BEGAN

Enjoy your deliciously exotic fruit ice cream under the very tree where it was grown.

Then, take a free self-guided walking tour around our Tropical Fruit Orchard.

  • 5 star ratingfruity ice creams Not your average ice cream. I was expecting to see Vanilla on the menu, but found only exotic fruit ice cream flavors available. I liked the combinations and flavors, glad I tried something new. Worth finding this cool spot.

    5 star ratingI never knew exotic flavours could be so delicious! 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.

    5 star ratingWish I could bring their ice cream home You can't pick the flavors for the 4 scoops, seems like they have only 4 flavors, but they are all lovely. Very quick service, just pay grab and go. Don't miss this if you like ice cream!
