Summer is officially here, and there’s no better way to cool down after a day at the beach than with a scoop of Australia’s favourite cold dessert. On Hastings Street- you are spoiled for choice, we have wrapped up the very best Noosa spots to get your ice-cream fix.
Massimo’s has (very rightfully) earned a reputation for having the best gelato in town, serving locals and tourists alike since 1995. Their gelato is o authentic, you’ll be transported to Italy with every spoonful.
The Spit Van
Owned by local family- the Watsons, The Spit Van is passionate about supporting local and doing their bit for the planet.

Visiting Happy Pops is an experience in and of itself. Their artisanal gelato and sorbet pops are handcrafted in their Noosa store. The Happy Pops experience starts with choosing your flavoured ‘naked pop’, then choose your chocolate to be drizzled on top and finally, pick your choice of toppings - all using only the finest ingredients. It’ll be a food experience you’ll want to put on Instagram- trust us.
