I took my nieces to get out the house for a bit. The ice cream is yummy, there are loads of flavours to choose from which change all the time. They do both ice cream and sorbet, fudge, scones, cake and loads of local foods...More

The most delicious, rich, creamy flavoursome icecream I've ever tasted in Australia. It tasted homemade. The selection of flavours was phenomenal. It was so good we drove back the next day to buy more!

Delicious hand made ice cream. Lots of treats in the gift shop. Family of 7 all had ice cream very affordable.

...but there is something missing at this venue. It feels baron and underused...maybe this has an effect on the ice cream experience. Nothing wrong with the ice cream itself, then again nothing to really shout about.

Nice Ice Cream. Good place to stop for a break. Expensive and no much local product. Will go back and try it again

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.
