Estabar, just up the street overlooking Newcastle Beach, is where you'll find everything local and seasonal. Including gelato. Each week their flavours change according to what fruits - and sometimes vegetables they can pick up at our local Farmers Market. Think Mandarin Jam and Roasted Macadamia, Lemonade Fruit and Ginger, Lime and Hibiscus, Blood Orange and Rhubarb and even Chocolate and Beetroot. For milky flavours, estabar uses Little Big Dairy's single herd milk and cream, the resulting' chocolate and Creamy Milk flavours are heavenly.

The Italians have been making amazing ice cream since at least the 17th Century, so they really know their stuff! Popolo is a traditional Italian gelateria, which focuses on the classic flavours, with a few modern twists thrown into the mix. The team are hugely passionate about the gelato they make, and you can even see them at work in the laboratorio through a glass wall. There’s a vast selection of different flavours on offer at Popolo. We highly recommend the indulgent almond amaretti and the punchy cinnamon and ginger.
