Surfers Paradise Beachfront Night Market

Gold Coast . 2012 . Aug 07-13

Every Wednesday and Friday evening, the foreshores of Surfers Paradise comes alive with makeshift market stalls selling a great variety of local produce, souvenirs, jewellery, handicraft, artistic and hand-made items, and the music of buskers.  There is even a magician performing at one of the stalls!

 Decorative Pieces for the Home...

 An old coin gets pressed and sculpted into a pendant!

 Beautiful handmade table runners and tissue box covers.

Recycled glass bottles are flattened and made into clocks.  Can you spot the Vegemite and Bundaberg root beer bottles from this picture?

 This is my favourite stall with gorgeous paintings for the home.

 Get a sketch or drawing done for a fee.

Body warmers made into adorable owls.

Get a python wrapped around your neck and live to tell the tale and take a picture.  Only for the brave hearted.

With a great variety of merchandize, it is little wonder that the promenade is vibrant and bustling with people.   There is bound to be something for everyone here.
