Sweet Whale Maroubra Serves the Coolest Treats You’ll Need to Beat the Summer Heat

Maroubra locals will say that this beachside suburb has been missing a decent ice cream joint, with a good number of flavour selections for many years. But with the opening of Sweet Whale Maroubra, a gelato and drink shop at Marine Parade, ice cream lovers now have something to talk about.

Sweet Whale Maroubra has opened its doors at the former stall that housed a news agency next to the pharmacy on Marine Parade, an area that draws a lot of foot traffic from families with kids strolling in the summer months.

Easily accessible either by car or foot, the ice cream shop is quite spacious for long lines of customers and whilst there’s not much to sit, the shop has a happy and vibrant feel.

The owners of Sweet Whale aren’t new to the ice cream business as they’ve successfully been running the award-winning gelato shop, Lello’s, at Westfield Eastgardens four kilometres west of their latest business.  Some of Lellos gelato flavours are also offered at the Maroubra store, such as the colourful and creamy Unicorn gelato (cotton candy flavour).

Aside from ice cream, the store also serves bubble tea, coffee and fresh juices. They’ve just debuted their Crystal Mermaid Tear, a cool combination of icy crushed mango and butterfly pea flavours topped with lychee popping pearls. It promises to be an “adventurous and chilly rush”!
