Nestled in the beautiful seaside village of Apollo Bay and worthy of lengthy road trips to ice-cream lovers state-wide, Dooley’s Ice Cream is famed for their award-winning ice cream, developing quite a cult following amongst locals and tourists alike since opening their doors in 2000.

And when we say award-winning, we really do mean it. Their Chocolate Ice Cream took out the Australian Grand Dairy Award title for 2019, and they’ve collectively won over 500 awards since ’08! We don’t even know how that’s possible but it certainly hints that they’re doing something right.

While road tripping to Apollo Bay was the only way you could previously get your hands on the goods, ‘Hooley Dooley Ice Cream’ has arrived as our saving grace, slinging scoops of the decadent iced treats to the Geelong community.

Made using the finest ingredients, Dooley’s ice creams have a unique creamy texture and flavours so varied and exciting that indecision abounds as you gaze through the cabinet.
Alongside the classic and refined flavours, we’ve also seen a slew of experimental or extravagant flavours, including the likes of Bailey’s, Cointreau, Cookies & Cream, Coffee Choc Crunch, Vovo, Chili Chocolate, Honey Malt, Jamaican Rum (chocolate rum & raisin) and licorice.

They also offer authentic gelato (Coffee Choc Crunch, Mango, Mint choc chip, Peanut butter and Matcha Green Tea with White Choc ripple) and vegan Friendly sorbet in flavours like strawberry, banana Cinnamon, Sugar-free Chocolate, Black Paradise (cocoa, coconut, charcoal), Lemon and Mango.

Focusing on decadent, seasonally driven scoops, Hooley Dooley is also set to bring a fun, nostalgic edge to Geelong with their excellent milkshakes, sundaes and takeaway tubs too – all served in brilliant biodegradable packaging.

We’re beyond ready to welcome this new biz to Geelong with very open arms.
