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 Queensland. With over 500 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.

Carrara Markets is a popular family day out, with buskers, pony rides, merry go rounds, bungy trampolines and face painters.
