There are plenty of shopping options in Surfers Paradise. However, sometimes they tend to pale in comparison with the idea of hopping from one market stall to another and picking the best arts and crafts item at a bargain price.
What the Market Is About
Broadbeach isn’t just about sand, sea, and sun. It is also a commercial and tourism hub. To attract more people to visit the area, several kinds of markets are being put up. Every first as well as third Sunday of the month, more than 100 stalls gather around the Kurrawa Park. They sell a wide variety of goods, most of them coming from the Hinterland and other quite-far places from Broadbeach. This happens every 8 in the morning until 2:30 in the afternoon daily unless the weather is going to be very bad.
What to Do
It’s the most ideal time to go out with your family and consider a whole new way of shopping. The kids will certainly have a lot of fun since some of the items sold are meant for them. At times there are free activities shoppers can enjoy such as workshops and cooking demos.
Though most of the items in the market are arts and crafts such as ceramics, artworks, and furniture and fixture, there are also people who sell food like cookies, cakes, preserves, and jams.
Majority of the sellers allow customers to haggle, so it’s not possible to obtain the items you really like at 10 to 20 percent off the retail price.
In the meantime, before or after the market closes, you can take a stroll along the park. Some areas are perfect for a little book reading or picnicking. You can also head to the patrolled beaches where various water activities can be performed. The area is also abundant of dining places, from restaurants to bistros. At night they offer performances courtesy of live local bands.
Several Broadbeach accommodation choices are available and can definitely take you a lot closer to these markets. However, because this region is a favorite spot among tourists, it’s very easy for them to get occupied easily. Here’s a tip for you: book now. You can select the best Broadbeach accommodation option for you and perhaps for your friends and family.
