The seemingly quiet Fraser Coast offers more than meets the eye! This picturesque destination is becoming increasingly popular amongst tourists and travellers for its whale encounters, island tours, and water activities, but on the shore there’s lots to be experienced and enjoyed too. The Fraser Coast is home to lots of markets happening regularly throughout the year, and its a great way to see the local culture and leave with a bargain.
The Torquay Beach Markets are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays each month from 7am to 1pm, offering a wide variety of stalls to sift through. The beachfront setting is unique and gives you the chance to spend the rest of the day swimming!
Buzers Bazaar is a boutique market at the Torquay Esplanade every Friday afternoon, depending on the weather. Peruse through the vintage items, clothes, arts and crafts, and souvenirs! Grab some tasty food and a coffee as you browse and enjoy the atmosphere.
The Handmade Expo and Vintage Market is a new market on the scene offering everything handmade, homegrown, home-baked, and of course, vintage. Held at the PCYC in Hervey Bay, come along and take home some unique vintage items for a bargain price as well as try some inviting homemade food.
The Maryborough City Heart Markets happen every Thursday, and the Maryborough city centre transforms completely with over 120 stalls to wander through and a bustling and friendly atmosphere. The many stalls offer a huge variety, and you can be sure to leave with something interesting.
