You might have thought King George Square looked pretty fine during the day, and maybe a tad finer at night, but it's at twilight City Hall really shows off its colours. And what better backdrop to shop the evening away with around Christmas time, especially when the King George is filled with some of Brisbane's best designers and makers — and a sleigh full of decorations
The Brisbane Christmas Markets are the festive offshoot of the Brisbane Twilight Market, showing off a hefty array of stalls staffed by some pretty nifty and talented artists. There will be an eclectic selection of goods on offer, all of the 100% locally handmade variety. Plus, this market is all about sound, smell and sales — live music will provide the soundtrack to the evening, food vendors will take care of your hunger, and expect to be hit with that spring flowerbed smell that always lingers when there's a soap stall around.
The markets run on December 9 from 9am to 3pm. Take along some cash and stock up on all things crafty. Plus, there'll be an on-site Christmas craft workshop if all that shopping leaves you inspired.
