Address: Tamborine Mountain Markets – Show Grounds, Main Western Rd
Tamborine Mountain Markets are the biggest markets, held every 2nd Sunday each month
from 8am- 2pm. Enjoy heaps of craft stalls showcasing their wares, locally grown plants and vegetables, local art and much much more. Be sure to plan an hour or two to wander through the market.
And if all this makes you hungry, there is plenty of food to eat right then, there’s excellent coffee, proffertjes (Dutch pancakes), German sausages (try the “Knackwurst” with mustard – yum!) or be tempted by baked jacket potatoes or fresh corn on the cob.
There is often live music and other entertainment for the family. Usually there’s a singer or performer on the gazebo stage, giving these markets a relaxing country atmosphere. Large shady trees keep you cool in summer, and some open areas allow you to soak in the sun on cooler days.
Little kids can have pony rides or play in the kids’ castle area, or have some fun with the small kid’s car ride. The “Tamborine Mountain County Markets” are definitely family-friendly, sometimes several dozen prams are seen parked in the eatery area!
Be sure to arrive pretty early, as parking is limited (and difficult) – please be safe when parking! And of course, as you stroll through the markets grab a sausage or snack from the food stalls.
