Heralded as some of the best gelato in Australia, Gelato Messina offers 35 signature flavours, as well as five gelato specials that change each week. Crowd favourites include salted caramel with white chocolate chip, rich chocolate fondant and more traditional variants, like pistachio and hazelnut. With multiple locations across Sydney, Gelato Messina has become a stalwart on the local dessert scene. Expect long queues at the Bondi Beach location, particularly in summer, but rest assured, it’ll be worth the wait. Gelato Messina also has a range of dairy-free sorbets and cleverly crafter bespoke gelato cakes. 

A cool blend of surfers and socialites, Bondi is one the city’s most iconic locations. The beach is perfect for a dip; Gould and Hall Streets are teeming with cosy cafés and boutiques; a slew of yoga and Pilates studios have made the area a hub for healthy living. Over the past few years, Bondi has also become one of the city’s most popular dining destinations. Enjoy a tipple at one of the relaxed wine bars and sample fresh seafood at Matt Moran’s North Bondi Fish or Maurice Terzini's Icebergs Dining Room and Bar.
