The warmer weather has arrived! Nothing cools you off like a delicious ice-cream. So we have prepared a list of the best ice-cream parlours surrounding our 4 resorts and also some of the most delicious flavours on offer.

Gold Coast – Broadbeach & Surfers Paradise

Cold Rock

Cold Rock is located in the main street of Broadbeach (Albert Avenue), a short walk from both ULTIQA Air on Broadbeach & ULTIQA Freshwater Point Resort. Famous for its “cold rock” in which customers get to choose their own ice-cream flavour then chose a variety of mix’s such as caramel fudge, sweets, chocolates or biscuits then it all gets smashed together using the cold granite bench top.   There’s also a Cold Rock on Elkhorn Avenue, in Surfers Paradise.

Recommended flavours: Milo Ice-cream with Maltesers & caramel fudge added in or bubble-gum ice-cream with nerds & sour worms added in.


Also located in the main street of Broadbeach, the healthy alternative to traditional ice-cream. Customers are invited to choose from a variety of frozen yoghurt flavours and then can add toppings at the self-service counter. Toppings include fresh fruit, muesli, sweets, biscuits & sauces. At checkout customers can try guess the weight of their yoghurt and if they get it right, they get the yoghurt for free.

Recommended flavours: Original yogurt with muesli, fresh strawberries and coconut shavings or Nutella yoghurt with Oreo bits and chocolate topping.
