  • Just another market selling random things mostly. It is worth a browse if you enjoy markets but I personally prefer food markets. They do have interesting things for children though for example a reptile petting booth, farms animals petting enclosure and play areas with giant sculptures that kids seem to love.
  • Paulette, the beautiful resident psychic is absolutely amazing! The things she knew were just astounding. I was in tears (in the best way) Do yourself a favor - go see her!!! You'll be so happy you did!! 5 stars all the way!!
  • Huge markets with lots to look at and do. Heaps for kids to do including pony rides, putt putt, reptile show and face painting. Some favourite stalls include the vintage and antique store, rockabilly stall and haberdashery that sells iron on patches (so many different ones!). Would highly recommend a visit.
  • Wonderful Saturday/Sunday markets with something for everyone. Fun kids activities area with pony rides, terrific hands on reptile show, large pet shop with puppies, chickens, birds, kittens etc. Large stalls sell fresh fruit, veg, flowers, breads, cheeses, meat & the bakeries do fab range of everything delicious . There's crystals, essential oils, sunglasses & cheap spectacles., paintings, statues, carvings, clothing, leather bags, rows of watches & clocks, 2nd hand books, plants ,herbs & interesting 2nd hand/collectable area. Take a break at the excellent food stalls or have a round of mini golf. Shuttle Buss runs especially to Carrara markets as well as public bus stop nearby. Allow a few hours browsing in this friendly, interesting place
  • Nice little market at the Gold Coast. Great selection of local fresh vegetables and fruit. The other parts of the market are for clothing and trinkets so if you are into all of that then you'll love this market.
