Meeanjin Markets

An Indigenous-focused market in the middle of the city.

There's no shortage of markets happening around Brisbane — pick a day, pick a spot, and you'll likely find a bunch of stalls selling a range of wares. One thing that you won't usually come across, however, is a market dedicated to authentic Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts, crafts and experiences, which is what the two-day-only Meeanjin Markets is offering.

It's Brissie's first-ever all-Indigenous market, held as part of The Festival, it's aiming to become a regular event like Sydney's Blak Markets. Here's hoping that becomes a reality — and the best way to show your support is to head along on April 6 and 7.

Taking place at Reddacliff Place, the markets will highlight the work of local Queensland creators, while also celebrating the sights, sounds, creativity and flavours of the Australian bush. Drop by from 10am to 9pm on Friday and 10am to 5pm on Saturday.
