NEXT MARKET: 06 - 08 DEC Add to calendar

Our Christmas Market


Les than six weeks to go until we start the holiday celebrations and invite you to shop ’til you drop for all your Christmas needs. Over three magnificent days, we will be presenting the best of local and Australian produce to stock your pantry and wine cellar. We will be showcasing the best hand made artisan gifts from Australian designers, along with Christmas and Summer fashion that is unique, tailored and stylish. We’ll also have dozens of homewares stalls to make your Christmas home beautiful.

Our special twilight market is on Friday 7th December from 5pm until 9pm, and then on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th, we’ll be open from 10am until 4pm.


Our Christmas theme is already evident across our website and social media, based around native greenery, bright wattle, natural paper and string. We have accents of rich red and zesty green, but have chosen to highlight our wonderful seasonal Australian wildlife on a crisp natural background of white.

The Australian Christmas is all about sunshine, the outdoors, family and loved ones, a glass of crisp wine, an icy cocktail and the best fresh produce. Decorate your home accordingly, bringing the outdoors in and adding a natural touch to the holiday table.

Make sure you are wearing the perfect Summer outfit, accessorised with original and glittering jewellery, the perfect scarf and pair of shoes. And select gifts that your loved ones will appreciate for their craftsmanship, attention to detail and originality.

We have 290 Australian designers and producers that can help you achieve the perfect celebration. Browse the halls and tick off your list buying local from the makers and supporting small business – putting your money where it will really make a difference to the people that work hard to present their creations. Check out our DIRECTORY to find out which designers and producers will be at the market so you can start making your list.

There will be live music, Christmas music, drinks, snacks and street food, all in an atmosphere that’s buzzing with excitement. We can’t wait to welcome you – 7, 8 & 9 December, Budawang, Parkes and Coorong Pavilions, Exhibition Park Canberra.
