My all-time favourite markets, the Twilight Markets in Caloundra are back at the end of September, just in time to kick off the warmer months of summer.
The Caloundra Twilight Markets are very successful in bringing that magic feeling of summer, holidays and goodwill together, all in one unparalleled location … Bulcock Beach. The Twilight Markets feature more than one hundred stalls, providing an opportunity for the family to get out and about; to amble through the markets with unique artisan and homemade stalls; while twitching noses at the food aromas, wafting temptingly through the sea breeze.
Locals and holidaymakers mingle, enjoying street food, gourmet lollies, fashion, jewellery, live music and very talented street performers.
Arrive early at the summer Twilight Markets Caloundra, have a swim in the calm waters, catch some sun rays and then settle in to watch a magnificent sunset (weather permitting) over the spectacular backdrop of the Pumicestone Passage and the Glasshouse Mountains.
With stalls lining the street of Bulcock Beach Esplanade, street entertainment and a wide variety of food stalls, this is definitely the best place to be on a Friday night, to enjoy live music, delicious food, unique arts and crafts and so much more. The Twilight Markets in Caloundra are the perfect location to soak up the holiday spirit of some light shopping under the stars.
Alternatively, grab the children and set off on a treasure hunt of a different kind - walk the Downtown Caloundra Street Art Trail in search of the extraordinary murals that have been created on this trail. The Art Trail loop is only 1.7km and boasts nine fabulous street murals, all waiting to be discovered. The Downtown Caloundra Street Art Trail is a creative and fun way to spend a couple of hours, before venturing back down to the summer Twilight Markets and tackling the ensuing hunger pangs at the tempting Food Trucks.
