WHAT A SCOOP! Where to get the best ice cream in Newcastle…as voted by you

Let’s face it. There are few things finer than cooling down during these sweltering temps with a scoop or two of top quality ice cream.

That endless ballet of negotiating those milky drips meandering down the cone as your boysenberry ripple slowly melts in the summer sun, is almost a rite of passage for us Aussies.

And when it comes to iced confection, Newcastle definitely knows its stuff – as evidenced by the amount of stand-out ice creameries and gelaterias we have in our part of the world.

Given that we’re staring down the barrel of a long hot summer, we thought it prudent to find out which of these ice cream/gelato purveyors stands head and shoulders above the rest.

After wading through more than 32 flavours of votes from our recent Facebook poll, we arrived at Top Five, which we then threw back at you to put in order.
