Swashbuckler's Delight


The Melbourne Pirate Market is returning for its 6th glorious year and nowhere else will you find such a unique and enviable bounty of pirate themed paraphernalia. For sea lovers and feather wearers, sword wielders and treasure hunters this is your Atlantis. Bright and colourful, salty and chintz, ever so much more than your standard run-of-the-mill market, this is quite literally an experience.

Neptune himself is sure to attend this event for the folly and rum as pirates gather for their annual congress. Costumes are widely encouraged and if you haven't already got the bits and bobs needed to be the envy of Jack Sparrow himself, you are sure to find everything you need right here. There will be costumes and wardrobes full of accessories suitable for both men and women and kids alike. Strap a sword or vintage-style pistol to your hip and finish your ensemble with some hearty leather, a strap or two around your wrist and waist.

Amid the goblets and skulls and Steampunk inspired 'strange' collectibles and artisan crafts, you'll find the finest potions and cards, hourglasses and telescopes, compasses, hats, gloves and jewellery, feathers and even a parrot to sit upon your shoulder. If you aren't the finest sea-goer to hit Melbourne's shores, you soon will be. Or stow a pirate-themed 'talking piece' or two for your home or office and add a little sea spice to your otherwise green pastured environment.
