Centrally located at Carrara on the beautiful Gold Coast, only a stone’s throw from Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, Carrara Markets is the biggest permanent weekend marketplace in Australia. With over 400 stalls covering 10 acres it’s a treasure trove of the curious and the unusual. It’s also the original home of discount shopping when it comes to fresh produce, fashion, homewares, pots, plants, bric a brac, souvenirs, arts and crafts and just about everything else.
For over 30 years Carrara Markets has been a major Gold Coast tourist attraction. It’s a great day out and only 45 minutes from Brisbane, taking Exit 77 off the M1. Carrara Markets is a popular family day out, with buskers, pony rides, jumping castle, bungy trampolines and face painters. A popular attraction for the family is a visit to Luke’s Reptile Kingdom. A breathtaking interactive show featuring dozens of Australia’s unique and unusual creatures including very rare species and the world’s most venomous snakes.
