With Summer almost over and slowly fading away, why not try these cool Insta-worthy ice creameries in Canberra to satisfy and meet your summer heat treat needs?
With so many melt in your mouth and diverse flavours, the feeling of summer will never die out no matter if the weather dies down. As a sucker for sweets, I can confirm I have tasted and fallen in love with these amazing places listed and had to share them with you all.
Located on the trendy and hipster-like Lonsdale street precinct in Braddon, this place is gelato and sorbet heaven. It offers a wide variety of rich and sweet flavours, catered to you by the friendliest of staff in an overall relaxed space. It is perfect for a night out in the city with friends or with the family, to grab an ice cream, sit back and enjoy. Not only is it known for its gelato and sorbet, but also their good quality coffee and rich and creamy thick milkshakes. It definitely has to be one of my favourites.
(P.S. would definitely recommend the boysenberry gelato, one of the best flavours I swear!)
You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy gelato and that’s kind of the same thing.

It is definitely a family favourite, located all over Canberra such as in Manuka, Gungahlin and the City Centre, to satisfy your gelato cravings wherever you are.
