Gelato Messina Is Delivering Free Choc Tops to Beaches Across Sydney Via Speedboat

All you need to do is flag down the speedboat and wade out to get your frozen treat.

Gelato Messina wants to bring you its sweet treats in style this weekend. The famed frozen treats brand has teamed up with Deliveroo to deliver gelato by speedboat to nine beaches and wharves around Sydney. Because, why not?

This Saturday, December 15 and Sunday, December 16, beachgoers simply have to hang out at the beach and wait for the speedboats to show up — no pre-ordering necessary. Once you see the Deliveroo boat approaching, you just have to flag it down, wade into the water and retrieve your dessert — a strawberry pavlova choc top or a peach bellini 'Weissina' Bar. A lucky few will also nab a free beach towel alongside their gelato.

On Saturday, the speedboats will head to Double Bay at around 11.30am, before heading over to Rose Bay, Nielsen Park, Milk Beach and Watsons Bay (spending roughly 30 minutes at each spot). The boats will have a similar schedule on Sunday, but will start at Manly Wharf then make their way across to Clontarf Beach, Spit Marina and Balmoral Beach.

If hunger strikes while you're lazing about on one of the beaches, and it's a hunger that a choc top alone can't fix, you could also order savoury food from Deliveroo. It's now delivering food directly to 150 beaches around the country — but it will be via a regular ol' motorbike or scooter (and a determined human on foot), not a boat.

Deliveroo will be delivering free Gelato Messina to nine Sydney beaches and wharves on Saturday, December 15 and Sunday, December 16.
