There is plenty of parking and a public toilet across the road from the market site. Take your time going through these stalls and you will find some bargains. The jewellery is unbelievably cheap. I purchase 9 pieces for less that $50. I also purchase...More

We'd tendered ashore from our cruise ship and were driven by shuttle from the Abell Point Marina to the foreshore park, exactly where the market began. What a surprise! We expected to find jewellery, organic foods, women's and children's clothes, and a limited range of...More

Very diverse market for its size and considering that there isn't a permanent structure supporting the stall holders. All stalls are temporary and erected the morning of the market consequently there are some physical restrictions on offerings. However you would probably be pleasantly surprised what...More

The markets were nice for a morning stroll. Although small, there was a lot of fresh produce, a great coffee stand and local handmade items. As always, junk stalls too but I just skipped over them. Great place to visit during summer when there’s loads...More

A lovely little market filled with lots of smiles and friendly market stall holders. My boys and I enjoyed stilling through the small markets checking out home made snacks, drinks, jewellery, sarongs, hats, trinkets and more. Even nautical stuff! We arrived on a cruise ship...More

Love this little beachside market on Saturdays. When visiting and if you love mangoes then you can go better than the mango sorbet from the Bowen mango man. It's 100% just mango and a delicious way to keep cool while strolling through the market stalls....More

As a cruise ship had docked near Airlie Beach the market had a variety of different stalls with plenty to see, browse or eat! We enjoyed wandering through the two main aisles even though it was a little busy. Lots of jewellery, beachwear, take away...More

Lovely seaside markets though at times a bit crowded on the footpath. Very friendly and interesting people around. Pleasant stroll for a Saturday morning after breakfast walk.

I love a market so we were really looking forward to this. Pretty small and not a lot on offer compared with other Beach markets visited on previous holidays. Worth a look if you’re staying in town as we are but I wouldn’t go out...More
