The Rocks Christmas Markets
The Rocks Markets
The Rocks Markets are turning up the holiday vibes with Christmas themed decorations and fanciful roving entertainers. Pop in this December and you’ll discover unique gifts crafted and sourced by locals, for locals - from handmade jewellery and eye-catching art, to skincare, homewares and clothing. Filling Christmas stockings is hungry work so take a moment to sample the market’s delicious fare.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between Dec 2 - 18
Friday 4pm - 8pm
Saturday 10am - 8pm
Sunday 10am - 5pm
Please note the Friday markets will be home to circa 40 stallholders, while our weekend markets will be home to circa 60 stallholders.
Buy From the Bush Markets
Surprise your family and friends with unique Christmas gifts they’ll treasure and support rural communities at the Buy From The Bush markets. When farms in rural Australia dried up in 2019, Grace Brennan came up with a nifty idea to support drought-affected homes. She created an Instagram account @buyfromthebush to show off all the amazing things that rural communities were making - seven weeks later she had 130,000 followers and bush businesses were selling out of stock.
Years later, Buy From the Bush now holds in person markets to connect bush businesses with city dwellers, selling beautiful locally-sourced art, gifts, homewares, fashion, baby accessories and fresh produce.
Pound Paws Pop Up Market
Have a furry little Christmas at our Pound Paws Dog Day event! Pound Paws is an Australian based charity with a mission to encourage the public to adopt instead of shop and create a positive movement for our furry friends.
Pop by Dawes Point Park for Christmas themed pet market stalls selling pet accessories, treats and more. There will also be a Best Dog Trick and Best Dressed Costume Competition with celebrity judges and live music.
