Tickled to hear you enjoyed what we call our "Full Monty" frozen gelato sundae-- and it's healthy too! Made in small batches in our own kitchen with vanilla bean and sweetened with honey instead of white sugar, there's a dairy-free frozen chocolate gelato option too....More

Great spicey hot chocolate. Staff a bit snooty. A good choice of camping good including ready made wraps, but, because of location and lack of competition, expensive. Buy your necessary in Queenstown.More
