Many unusal varieties of ice cream where on offer, some with bush flavours. Also they have Biltong and fudge. Beautiful outside sitting area where you can look over the gardens.

I Really loved this place, the ice-cream is 'out of this world'. The sight is really nice, Atherton Tableland coolness...The choice of ice-cream (local products) is vast - one MUST try these to believe the taste..

This is there's second time we have visited here and the icecream is still as delicious. Flavours of local fruits and great sorbets. Which is great for hubby as he it's lactose intolerant.

One of the nicest and smoothest ice cream I ever tasted - mango ice cream @ Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery.

Lovely ice-cream. Staff are really helpful and knowledgable. I enjoyed reading the ice cream related triva around the shop. Biggest problem was deciding what to eat. I would have paid the same a amount for a small tasting plate with little scoops of different flavours....More

Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery manufactures premium ICE-CREAM made from full-cream milk and pure cream, as well as SORBET (dairy free) using our fresh fruit grown here on the Tablelands. We also manufacture our own divine fresh FUDGE. Recently, we introduced a line of JAMS made here at the ice-creamery. And for those who prefer a savoury snack, try our BILTONG - just like beef jerky only better!

At the Visitor Centre you can indulge in banana splits, waffles, home-made apple pies, Devonshire Teas, iced-coffees, milkshakes, a hot Jaques coffee. Alternatively, enjoy a cone/cup of ice-cream or sorbet - we have 21 flavours on display at any one time.

Our Visitor Centre is fully fenced with acres of lawn for children to enjoy as well as supporting easy disability access. We also have a range of local products/giftware including Nucifora Tea, Jaques Coffee, Soapherb Soaps & Diffusers, Spicez, Sweet Buzz Honey and more.
