Combine a day of retail therapy with a visit to one of the Gold Coast’s most iconic attractions at Carrara Markets, just a short drive from Foreshore Mermaid Beach accommodation.
The weekend market has been a favourite with local bargain hunters for over 30 years and is the biggest permanent market of its kind in Queensland. Spread out over 10 acres, there are around 500 stalls to explore, with something new and unexpected around almost every corner.
Browse the 100 or so fashion stalls for unique jewellery, swimwear and shoes, pick up the perfect holiday read on one of the many book stalls, or search out rare collectable LPs and music memorabilia you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll find 15 fresh fruit and vegetable stalls dotted around the market, as well as a selection of Continental style delis and specialty food shops. 10 Cafes offer respite from all the bargain hunting with everything from cooked
breakfasts to ice cream on offer.
Kids can get involved with face painting, pony rides, and merry go rounds at the Family Fun Lane or visit Luke’s Reptile Kingdom to get up close to lizards, frogs and snakes.
