The Fraser Coast region offers a number of bustling pop-up markets for tourists to enjoy on holiday, held each week and just moments away from our affordable Hervey Bay resort accommodation at Boat Harbour Studio Apartments.
One of these must-visit local markets is the Urangan Pier Park Community Markets next to Urangan Pier, only a short walk from our location in Urangan where we offer a range of comfortable studio suites and villas for couples, families and groups looking to soak up the picturesque Fraser Coast - the whale watching capital of Australia and the best destination for day trips to Fraser Island.
If you’ve got your eye on the Fraser Coast for your next holiday, make sure to put everything it has to offer - including Fraser Island, the best Hervey Bay restaurants and markets - in the palm of your hand by booking with us!
Urangan Pier Markets
The Urangan Pier Park Markets shouldn’t be ignored for first-time visitors on the Fraser Coast, run by local volunteers with a wide range of stalls offering fresh regional farmers’ produce, artisan-made souvenirs and goods, crafted artworks and jewellery, unique homewares, plants, toys, accessories, pre-loved fashion and lots more!
Browse and take home an assortment of cheap bargains, taste homemade treats and hot food specials, complete with the opportunity to mingle with the locals and get a feel of Hervey Bay’s friendly coastal community. The Urangan Park Community Markets are located adjacent to Urangan Pier - one of our popular local landmarks and sightseeing spots - and take place every Wednesday and Saturday from 7am to 1pm.
Another fantastic market in the Fraser Coast region is the bustling Maryborough Markets, appearing each Thursday morning on Adelaide and Ellena Street in central Maryborough with over 120 stalls to stroll around and peruse.
This lively market offers fresh local produce, handcrafted souvenirs and homewares, natural beauty products, flowers, homemade treats, fashion, jewellery, handbags and more - all with a fun atmosphere involving live music and entertainment from local costumed performers, activities for kids and the Maryborough Town Crier!
Maryborough - a historical Fraser Coast suburb famous as the birthplace of Mary Poppins - is a short 30-minute drive from our Urangan accommodation in Hervey Bay.
