We stopped here after our busy day in the rain forest and the ice cream from here was awesome, fresh flavours and very creamy, definitely worth stopping at.

Really interesting flavours, 4 flavours in a cup we had 3 serves which was plenty for family of 5. Soursop- I was sceptical but it was delicious, Wattleseed - chocolatey who knew! , Passionfruit - Yum and Coconut - really creamy. Well done Daintree Icecream.
