Colourful Point Cook local artists market
Point Cook in Victoria is the home of the RAAF Base and the current home of the RAAF Museum. Originally the name of the town was spelt Point Cooke and was named after John M. Cooke, who was a mate of His Majesty's vessel "Rattlesnake". Over the years almost all references to the town have dropped the 'e', although the point itself is still named Point Cooke.

The town is also home to the Point Cook Market, which was established by the Jamieson Way Community Centre in 2007. The market operates three times a year and is a favourite community event for the townsfolk and visitors. Showcasing local artists and incorporating their artwork, jewellery, handmade gifts, candles, soap, cards, toys, bath and body, lollies, baby items clothing, cakes and more, this market is a focal date in everyone's diary.

There is also a music performance from the local school and from the church choir, free face painting for the kids and a jumping castle. The Scouts run a scent provoking sausage sizzle, which has everyone lining up for more.

The Point Cook Market is located at the Jamieson Way Community Centre, 59 Jamieson Way, Point Cook from 10.00am through to 2.00pm. New stallholders are always welcome and can contact the organisers through their Facebook Events Page or telephone 03 9395 3777. Email is Entry is free.
