live + work + play

Open air shopping is a favourite pastime in the Rainbow Region. Each weekend there’s a big, colourful market in one of the towns or villages brimming with fabulous arts and crafts, second-hand bargains, locally-grown organic produce and lots, lots more. There’s entertainment from local musicians and buskers, an array of home-cooked treats and a relaxed, festive atmosphere. A visit to the markets is more than a shopping trip, it’s a unique and highly rewarding day out.

Held weekly across the regions various towns and villages, locals and visitors alike flock to some of Australia’s biggest and best markets. They offer a wonderful platform for local artists and designers to display their works. There is no shortage of entertainment as you wander through the eclectic assortment of stalls. Buskers provide the soundtrack to your market experience as listen to the tunes of piano accordians, saxophones, bongo drums and other indigenous instruments. Face painting and plenty of ‘hands on’ interaction for the kids ensures your trip to the markets will be enjoyed by the whole family. For the calendar click
