Brisbane Riverside Markets
Twenty years ago, when shops in Brisbane were closed on Sundays, the idea of Brisbane's Riverside Markets was born. Now, Riverside Markets is bigger and more enjoyable than ever. Every visitor to Brisbane, Australia should check them out on their stay.
The success of these Brisbane markets is partly its stunning location. The markets sit on the north banks of the Brisbane River, overlooking the impressive Story Bridge and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. The markets are outdoors, making the most of the gorgeous Brisbane weather, while the breezes off the river make for a comfortable stroll.
The Riverside Markets have a tradition of giving Brisbane's artists and manufacturers the opportunity to show their work, and gain a reputation for high quality goods at a reasonable price. Many thriving local businesses once used the markets as a springboard to success.
The Riverside Markets are located in Brisbane city's finance district, at Riverside Centre, 123 Eagle Street. They are very easy to find, as the CityCat and ferry stop is right on the doorstep, literally a few hundred metres away. Bus and train transport is plentiful, or you'll find on-street parking and parking stations nearby.
So whether you're looking for a small birthday present or handcrafted furniture to fill a house, you'll find it all here. Thousands of Brisbane residents do all their Christmas shopping here every year. Get your palm read, try some exotic food, browse the stalls or just take in the gorgeous river views. It's a Sunday well spent.
