Simmo’s Ice Cream takes us back to the delicious gelato we consumed daily in Italy. We can’t visit the Margaret River region in Western Australia’s South West without going to this ice-creamery, our daughters wouldn’t let us. Read on to find out more information along with photos of the grounds.

Simmo’s started back in 1993 with an ancient Irish Ice Cream recipe. The father and son duo opened up with a small ice cream machine that could only make 2 tubs at a time. They started with just 12 flavours and now make over 60 different ones.
They were voted one of The Top 15 Ice Creameries in the World by USA Today, pretty impressive hey!
Simmo’s Ice Cream Flavours
There are too many ice cream flavours to list but you can find them on Simmo’s Ice Cream page.
As you can imagine, we have tried a lot of different flavours over the years. I can honestly say that I haven’t had one that I didn’t like. There have, of course, been some stand outs. Between the four of us those were:
- Double Toffee
- Whiskey Prune
- Mango Sorbet
- Lemon Cheesecake
- Mango & Macadamia
The ice cream made using local full cream milk and the best ingredients they can source. Vegans don’t have to miss out either as they have a selection suitable.
Family Fun Park
Update 2022: Unfortunately the adventure playground has been replaced with modern playgrounds.
Apart from the delicious ice cream, another great reason to visit Simmo’s Ice Creamery Dunsborough, is for their grounds. Lots of seating is provided or you can picnic on the grass overlooking the paddocks.
BBQs are free to use if you want to stay for lunch and maybe a game of mini golf (at a charge).
Look out for Edward the Emu; be warned though; he loves ice cream!
Other Food Options at Simmo’s
If for some reason, you don’t like ice cream (shock, horror), there are also other options including Yahava coffee, hot chocolate, tea, toasted panini, waffles, and sundaes.
