Brisbane Gelato Messina has arrived!

This is not a drill!

We’ve been waiting with bated breath for months, and now the moment has finally arrived. The opening of Brisbane Gelato Messina has officially been confirmed for around 5pm next Wednesday, March 29. AND it’s launching with a Bundaberg Rum flavour aptly named QUEENSLANDAARRR!!!

Setting up shop at The Melbourne Residences in South Brisbane, the Brisbane Gelato Messina will be Messina’s largest store to date.

The South Brisbane gelato store is the second Queensland location (Coolangatta opened in early 2015) and the first in Brisbane. The 200sqm Brisbane digs will be fitted out with a full kitchen as well as a fully-functioning classroom, which will give ice-cream lovers the opportunity to take part in gelato masterclasses.

And if that’s not enough to get you excited, we’ve also heard whispers that the Brisbane Gelato Messina team will be running pop-up degustation dinners down the track.



The Brisbane Gelato Messina will feature the full range of 40 flavours, including their popular five rotating weekly specials.

The Queensland-inspired flavour will make all of your tropical ice-cream dreams come true by combining ginger gelato, pineapple cake and Bundaberg Rum caramel. The flavour will launch in Gelato Messina stores around Australia from next Tuesday, March 28, and in the Brisbane Gelato Messina store from Wednesday, March 29.

If you’ve tasted Messina flavours before, it’s safe to say you’ll be clearing your calendar to be among the first to check out the new digs. You definitely don’t want to miss out on your chance to taste the QUEENSLANDAARRR!!! special as it’ll only be sticking around for a week.

Here’s a little teaser to tantalise your tastebuds!
