Cairns Show

Cairns Show

The Cairns Show is one of the largest regional shows in Australia and is always a highlight on on the Tropical North Queensland calendar. Many events at the show are free once you have purchased an entry ticket. Animals on show include Cattle, Horses, Poultry, Birds, Goats, Guinea Pigs and Goats. In the main arena are many equestrian events together with entertainment into the night. Headlining this year's music is Justice Crew who will be performing twice a day. There are showbags, sideshow alley, carnival rides and fireworks. However what White Hat most looks forward to is just wandering around and watching and chatting to the various people of the region relaxing and celebrating.

Kern Arcade Car Park Markets

The Kern Arcade Car Park Markets have a large range of local fruit and vegetables, including organic and spray free produce. There are two mobile butchers plus over 150 stalls featuring locally made cakes and biscuits, chutneys and preserves, jewellery, bric-a-brac, ladies and children's fashions, collectable coins and notes, plants and timber craft.

White Hat recommends this market as a particularly efficient place for Sunday shopping since there is plenty of free parking both covered and uncovered in and around the market, and the Kern Arcade shops are also open for trading.

New Helensvale Farmers Market

White Hat has not yet had a chance to attend the New Helensvale Farmers Market so we cannot comment on its offerings, but we wish the venture every success.

..
Mount Isa Community Markets

The Mount Isa Community Market supports local community services and all the money that is raised, is given to different local charities in the area. The room is donated by the Overlander Hotel so why not make it a Sunday outing by having lunch at the hotel before or after you browse the market. Apart from an array of products, including some hand made by locals, you might find some interesting offerings from out of town travellers who are welcome to hire a table at a reasonable price. (White Hat suggests that might be a useful way to offload that stuff you're never going to use that your partner bought at previous markets down the road.)

..
Cloncurry Twilight Markets

The Cloncurry Twilight Markets feature baked goods, giftware,  jewellery, handmade items, food, art and craft. In addition there is sometimes a jumping castle and an outdoor feature film. The market is presented by the Cloncurry Historical Society and White Hat suggests it as a relaxed family outing for a Saturday evening.

..
Cloncurry Sunday Morning Markets

The Cloncurry Sunday Markets feature homewares, jewellery, fashion, food, art and craft. White Hat suggests that for a leisurely Sunday morning in Curry you come along and meet and support members of the local community.
