Finding the Best Ice Cream Treat this Summer

Posted: 12pm 06 May 2020

Let’s set the scene. You’re 12 years old again, it’s over 30 degrees and you’ve just spent the afternoon at the beach with your family. You built a sandcastle too close to the shore and the waves destroyed it. You went boogie boarding but got dunked by a wave. It was fun, but now you’re sunburned and exhausted. You’d totally do it all again, though. Alas, it’s time to pack up and head home, but what’s that Mum just said? Ice cream? You’re getting ice cream right before dinner?

The trip to the ice cream shop had never felt so long yet here you finally are, pressing your flushed cheeks against the cool screen where all the ice cream flavours are screaming to be tried! Dad’s rushing you to choose so you pick your trusty usual, chocolate chip. By the time you get back to the car, it’s already dripping down the cone and onto your arm. Now it’s like a delicious milkshake. #WorthIt

Sounds good, right? Don’t deny your children the same experience and help them find their best ice cream treat this summer.

Beachside Scoop

We understand that getting an ice cream treat this summer isn’t just about spoiling the kids but indulging yourself too. After playing about in the ocean beaches of Bongaree on Bribie Island, head to Scoopy’s for a late lunch or early dinner with the family before having to face the hardest decision of your life – choosing from 25 flavours of Peter’s ice cream. Including sorbet, gluten and dairy-free choices, there’s something to please everyone’s palate.

Find Scoopy’s at the Bongaree Jetty on Bribie Island open 7 days a week 6:30 am – 6:30 pm or drop by the Bribie Island Australia Day event to get in on their ice cream eating competition!

Long Yard

Looking to try some local flavours? Stocking an extensive range of high-quality artisanal gelato and sorbet from Maleny Food Co., you’ll have a tough time deciding what to try first at Long Yard Larder in Samford Village.

With flavours such as Cherry Ripe, Honeycomb, Ginger & Macadamia, Mango, and Forestberry amongst your usual Chocolate and Vanilla bean, you’ll be sure to find a flavour that’ll set your tastebuds dancing!

Sandstone Point Ice Creamery

From loaded sundaes to banana splits, why not stop in and treat yourself and your kids to a delicious range of ice creams at the Sandstone Point Hotel Ice Creamery. With such a delightful range of offerings, you’ll be sure to find the perfect combination (but best to try them all first, right?). With waterfront views and a kid’s petting zoo, it’s the perfect Moreton Bay Region ice cream treat this summer for your little one.

Redcliffe Jetty Markets

Enjoy an ice cream treat on Moreton Bay’s doorstep when you’re exploring the Redcliffe Markets, held every Sunday. From tantalising delights such as a gelato vendor, churros and other boutique offerings, you’ll be sure to find a flavour to satiate your cravings. If you can’t find anything in the markets, or you just can’t help yourself (don’t worry, we understand), then Redcliffe Parade itself has two waterfront shops awaiting your patronage.
