Advice Worth Taking

Queensland Road Trip, May 2022

Let’s go on a road trip! Come with us to Townsville and west on the Savannah Way to Karumba on an adventure in far north Queensland.  

Before we left home, a friend gave me some very important advice. 

“While you’re in Townsville, make sure you go to Juliette’s Gelateria on the Strand,” she said. 

And of course we did – twice!

 Our first visit came after we’d walked the Street Art Trail in the morning and explored Castle Hill in the afternoon, so a double scoop was well-earned. The extensive range of flavours meant choosing just two was difficult.

I decided on caramel biscotti topped with Malteser. Delicious!

The next afternoon we found ourselves on the Strand again, so we returned for seconds. This time I had vanilla choc cherry and chai latte – also delicious.

If you went to Juliette’s, what would you choose?

  1. I’m sitting here almost drooling thinking about what I’m guessing is gelato. When we visited Italy, I think there was a gelato shop every two blocks, and I tried to not miss too many. I haven’t had any since that trip, but if I was there with you, I’d try something chocolate and maybe something cherry. Honestly, though, you could pick anything out, and I’d be one happy camper. Looks delicious.

  2. i love the first photo, it looks like a really nice place in a good location. I love caramel so I would have the caramel biscotti, but on the numerous times I’ve holidayed in Italy over the years my favourite has always been Zuppa Inglese – translates literally as English Soup. The dessert itself is the Italian version of trifle and the ice cream flavour is based on that – a one-off unique flavour nothing like anything else but also very delicious. If you ever see any you should try some 🙂

  3. It does look messy, but when does that ever stop an expert gelato connoisseur? The chocolate looks like the most popular, and I would go with that and a caramel. Yum! Kind of like a Tim Tam.

  4. Just spent a week based in Townsville in our caravan. The Strand is a wonderful place for a walk with our dog, and yes, stopping at Juliette’s for ice cream is a must. I loved choc mint and macadamia but Karen can’t go past anything with chocolate in it! Cheers, Mark
