Blacktown Markets

Peruse vintage bric-a-brac while you snack on homemade dim sum in the Skyline Drive-In.

The Blacktown Markets are a second-hand shoppers haven, running every Sunday from 7am out of the Skyline Drive-In — the last surviving drive-in in the Greater Sydney Area. You'll be waking up at dawn to get the best picks at this market, which focuses on vintage and collectibles and acts as the largest continuous garage sale in Sydney.

Apart from your usual market bric-a-brac, the Blacktown Markets include specialty items such as model cars, Greek Orthodox gifts, boutique key cutters and fishing gear. It's a truly eclectic mix of items that you almost have to see the expanse of to believe. We could easily spend hours wandering around and still not have seen all of the unusual items for sale.

On the food side, think homemade dim sum, Dutch poffertjes (mini pancakes), souvlaki and authentic Maori delicacies, along with your usual fresh produce and baked goods. Though the market is difficult to get to without a car, it is worth hiring a GoGet for.
