Ice Cream Lover's Ultimate Guide to Fremantle

20 September 2023

Scoop up the best ice cream in Fremantle!

There’s no better way to spend a day in Fremantle than basking in sunshine as you stroll the cobbled streets of Perth’s old town, or sinking your toes into the warm sand as you watch the glistening waves crash on the banks of Freo — except of course if you add an ice cream to the mix.  

It’s no secret that our beloved portside city has some of the best scoops in the state, from the nostalgia of the ice creams that have been served up at the iconic Fishing Boat Harbour as long as we can remember, to the new innovations and collaborations of Chicho.

Step up to our window as we bring you the best ice cream shops in Fremantle.


Fremantle Markets, South Terrace

Muffle ice cream at Fremantle Markets

Just as unique as Fremantle itself and more than just a ‘waffle,’ Muffle serves up ice cream treats you won’t find anywhere else with Asian-European fusion desserts, combined with the perfect soft serve ice cream.

Bring back the taste of childhood with its ‘MILO’ — a waffle pocket filled with three layers consisting of milo, condensed milk and soft serve ice cream.

For those who crave the finer things in life, Gelatissimo’s award-winning artisan gelato is made fresh in-store daily with seasonal ingredients that are guaranteed to be a treat for your senses.

Gelatissimo took home Gold in the Australian Dairy Industry Awards 2023 with its Chocolate and Hazelnut offerings. Those with a sweeter tooth will enjoy its Silver award-winning Boysenberry Swirl, Decadent Cookie Dough, Cookies and Cream and Chunky NY Cheesecake.

Ben & Jerry’s

Shop 11/1-13 South Terrace, Fremantle

Ben & Jerry’s is considered a pioneer in the ice cream scene as one of the first ice-creameries to push the boundaries of how much you can fit into an ice cream.

All these years later, Ben & Jerry’s is still a must-scoop ice cream destination and is still challenging the limits of ice creams and our taste buds.

Its latest invention is the ‘Marshmallow Sky’ featuring marshmallow ice cream with marshmallow swirls and of course, gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough is a challenge we are willing to take.

Chicho Gelato

And that’s not even the best part! You then get to top the ball with your choice of toppings, be it Vanilla Bean and Salted Caramel, Cookies and Cream, Pandan and Coconut and many more.
