Sundays mornings are normally a wonderful time to sleep in, slow down and relax. For most holidaymakers however, this time is still an important part of their vacation.
Want to do something interesting this Sunday morning? Why not join the hordes of locals and visitors at one of Brisbane’s thriving Sunday markets?
The drive from the city to Rocklea only takes about 16 minutes to do. If you haven’t already arranged a car hire Brisbane for your stay, check out our range of quality rental cars available. You will be impressed with the choice of rental cars we have available and our very affordable prices.
The biggest market of them all is the Sunday’ Discovery Market’ at Rocklea. The market is managed by the people who run the Brisbane’s wholesale fruit and produce market and the flower market during the week, and the Saturday Fresh Market. Their experience in market management and active promotion of the Sunday Discovery Market attracts the widest range of vendors and goods that you could image. Savvy locals and visitors love it!
How many stalls would you expect to find there? 30…50…more?
There are over 380 stalls, all competing in good spirit to attract you to their tremendous selection of goods and food.
As you wander beneath the sail-covered paved walkways with live music in the background, you will be amazed at the creative talent displayed in the art and craft items, the countless number of antiques and collectables, clothes and more clothes at bargain prices.
Fossick for book titles you’ve been unable to find before and other titles that promise a jolly good read and choose from thousands of cheap CD’s and DVD’s.
While you may not be able to take quality plants back home with you, how about a living appreciation gift for your new local friends or hosts.
The kids by your side will be excited by all the toys and games on offer, but don’t forget the kids back home as there is so much to see and buy.
When you are ready for a short break from shopping, the choice of comfort food and aromatic coffee at the International food court promises to fill you right up.
Enjoy the free, on-stage live entertainment while you take a breather, then head out again and a visit more of the stalls.
Entry to the Sunday Discovery Market costs only $1.00 per adult, with children under 15 years-olds are free.
Sunday Discovery Market opens from 6:0 AM and midday between May and August, and 30 minutes earlier during the rest of the year. The market is extremely popular, so we highly recommend quite an early start to beat the crowd and have the best selections.
