Visiting the Collective Markets are an enjoyable way to wander through South Bank parklands. These 3-day weekly markets have stalls selling artisan food, gifts, clothing and handmade goods.
You’ll enjoy browsing through the summer dresses, t-shirts with prints, clothing, jewelry, earrings, scrunchies, sunglasses and hats. I’m lusting after the leather purses, handbags and belts.
Depending on who has a stall you might see plants and kokedama, henna body art, bath bombs, candles, iron on patches and amazing artwork. You might find gemstones and opals. There is usually a resident psychic reader.
If you’re feeling hungry there might be homemade lemonade, fresh fruit juices, churros, flavoured popcorn, potato twisters and more. I like to grab some fudge.
The markets are an easy walk from the South Bank train station and busway. Wear a hat and pack some water. Afterwards, you might like to enjoy a picnic lunch nearby in the parklands.
