Sample 144 delicious flavours and go behind the scenes at this 12-day ice cream bonanza
Are you a classic chocolate type of person or are you game for more experimental flavours like Yarra Valley pear and blue cheese or lemon star anise? Whatever your ice cream personality, the annual Ice Cream Festival has something tasty for you.
The famous Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery now has a sister venue on the Great Ocean Road. Both scenic locations will be hosting the Ice Cream Festival this February, with each developing their own suite of flavours to sample. Go beyond the humble scoop and try ice cream waffle sandwiches, shakes, pizzas and huge, shareable sundaes.
And that's not all. Ice cream aficionados can book into 40-minute tastings, where $18 gets you samples of 12 flavours, plus an insight into the art of making world-class ice cream. Or get the ice cream lovers deal: $15 for a souvenir sundae glass and tokens to try four ice creams throughout the festival.
Entry to the festival is free with ice creams starting from $4.80.
