Apart from an ice cold beer and surfing on the beach, the ice cream has to be one of the most distinctive features of Australia. All across the country, travellers will find an abundance of first class ice cream parlours serving a vast array of different flavours and desserts to suit all tastes, regardless of how strange or unique their taste buds may be.
Sydney – Gelato Messina (241 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst)
Gelato Messina is one of the most prized ice cream parlours in Sydney, serving what’s been called the best gelato outside Italy. All of their ice creams are made on location with a selection of premium ingredients and local produce. With over forty different flavours that change on a daily basis, Gelato Messina will even keep the regulars guessing.
Melbourne – Casa Del Gelato (163 Lygon Street, Carlton)
During 13 years of experience, Casa Del Gelato has built a name for itself by providing some of the most unique flavours of gelato in Melbourne. Not only are they very competitively priced, but they have one of the largest ranges of soy ice creams in the country; eyes closed, I guarantee that not even the most skilful gelato connoisseur would be able to tell the difference between them and their dairy counterparts.
Canberra – Pure Gelato (Unit 4, 189 Flemington Rd, Mitchell)
Pure Gelato is an award-winning establishment that boasts more than 150 different flavours of gelato. They only ever use the freshest ingredients and none of their gelato contains artificial colourings. One of the best features is that they guarantee to add at least one brand new flavour to their impressive collection every single month. Travellers wanting to experience Pure Gelato can even have their orders delivered directly to their Canberra hotel.
