Hello Market designers, and welcome to our new designers joining us for the first time!
As many of you travel from interstate to take up stalls at our markets, we have arranged for some discounted rates at a couple of local accommodation providers to assist you. Late September is a busy time in Canberra, with Floriade attracting visitors from all over the world (yes, really!) so if you haven’t arranged your accommodation yet, we urge you to get onto it quickly.
The following hotels have a discounted rate if you use the code given:
When booking to name the event “Handmade Canberra” to receive the discounted rate offers:
$148 per night Twin share
$135.00 per night single occupancy
$165.00 per night twin share including breakfast
$148.00 per night single occupancy and breakfast for one
Red Cedars Motel (Watson – walking distance from Epic)
When booking tell them you are from Handmade Canberra.
Queen bed, or two doubles (normally $125)
$115 for 2
$110 for 1
If neither of those suit, then other options that you might like to explore in the area include
- One of a Kind Apartments
- Ibis Budget
- Ibis Eaglehawk (recommended by some of our designers)
- Dickson Backpackers
- Carotel – motel and caravan park
- Best Western Tall Trees Motel, Ainslie
- The Pavilion on Northbourne
The grounds around the venue at Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) where the market is held, include camp grounds, so if you want to camp on site that is a very handy option.
More expensive and luxurious accommodation is available of course, and I highly recommend Hotel Hotel in the New Acton precinct if you want a treat that is a little different!
