When you think of the Gold Coast art and craft isn't usually what springs to mind, however you'll be surprised to learn that there is actually plenty of it happening on the coast and it's all available at the local markets. Whether you're after a souvenir, a gift, some artwork, a handy craft or just something a little different, the famous Gold Coast art and craft markets have got it all.
Held at Broadbeach on every first and third Sunday of the month, Coolangatta on every second Sunday of the month and at Burleigh Heads on the last Sunday of the month year round, these markets are a happening place buzzing with atmosphere and full of colourful things to see, buy and try. There are more than 150 stalls offering the most original and best locally made products and produce and having been operating for more almost 30 years, the markets are still a favourite with tourists and locals alike.
