Centrally located at Carrara on the beautiful Gold Coast, only a stone’s throw from Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, Carrara Markets is the biggest permanent weekend marketplace in Australia. With over 500 stalls covering 10 acres it’s a treasure trove of the curious and the unusual. It’s also the original home of discount shopping when it comes to fresh produce, fashion, homewares, pots, plants, bric a brac, souvenirs, arts and crafts and just about everything else.
For over 30 years Carrara Markets has been a major Gold Coast tourist attraction and a popular family day out, with buskers, pony rides, merry go rounds, bungee trampolines and face painters. A popular attraction for the family is a visit to Luke’s Reptile Kingdom. A breathtaking interactive show featuring dozens of Australia’s unique and unusual creatures including very rare species and the world's most venomous snakes.
And now new to the markets is King Tutt’s Putt Putt. With two amazingly themed 18 hole mini golf courses. Play outdoor amongst the ancient ruins of Asia. Play indoor with animated dinosaurs, swashbuckling pirates and mediaeval dragons. Simply anyone can play putt putt from age 4 to 84!
