Blak Markets Christmas Festival

Spend a day immersed in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and pick up some one-of-a-kind gifts at the Blak Markets Christmas Festival, taking place on La Perouse's Bare Island.

On Sunday, December 15, market-goers will be able to buy original artworks, beauty products, homewares and jewellery, knowing that 100 percent of profits will go back into Aboriginal communities.

You can also sample food and refreshments flecked with indigenous ingredients, get involved in a weaving workshop and even make some of your gifts by hand. Or you can update your balcony garden with a bunch of different native plants, bush foods and herbs from social enterprise Indigigrow.

Gates will open at 9.30am, with the Blak Markets officially kicking off with a Welcome to Country at 10.30am. Throughout the day, there'll be cultural singing and dancing performances and a workshop for kids, before it all wraps up at 3pm.

Access to Bare Island is usually restricted to tour groups, so this is also a special opportunity to wander around freely. Make the most of the warm weather and take your snorkel — we reckon it's one of the prettiest underwater spots in Sydney.
