Markets


Lucinda Markets

White Hat recommends that the Lucinda Markets are well worth a detour off the highway. With over 30 stalls in a seaside atmosphere and Hinchinbrook Island in the background there are plenty of relaxing things to see and do in Lucinda. It also offers wonderful opportunities for photographs, including the engineering achievement of the large Lucinda jetty.

Mercer Lane Markets

White Hat finds this to be a particularly well-chosen location for a market featuring hand made local art and craft. The location is in front of the nearly 50 metre long mosaic created by local artists and celebrating the history of the district -particularly the sugar cane industry. Take the time to observe the hidden details of the mosaic and the fine details of the craft works for sale.

Raintree Markets

If you find yourself just north of Townsville on the third Sunday of the month, White Hat suggests you might like to have a lazy picnic in the Rotary Park and wander around the Raintree Markets. It is also a great park for the kids to have a run and play. The market is set under an impressive group of raintrees and features fresh local produce, bric-a-brac, snacks, coffee, tropical plants and local craft.
