Uki Village is a classic country town famous for its monthly Buttery Bazaar Markets, cafes and its vintage/arts scene. It is located at the foot of Mt Warning and is surrounded by sub-tropical forests and lush rolling hills. The Tweed River runs parallel to the main road, making the village a lovely spot to stop in for coffee and an explore.

In the past, the region had a thriving dairy industry and Uki had its very own butter factory. The original buttery building has been restored and currently houses several vintage and curio shops as well as The Uki Pie Shop. The Old Uki Butter Factory is also home to the famous Uki Buttery Bazaar Markets which have taken place on the third Sunday of every month for the past thirty years. Weekly farmer's markets are also held every Saturday morning in The Uki School of Arts Hall.

The Uki Buttery Bazaar Markets are a perfect opportunity for local producers to sell their fresh fruit and vegetables as well as delicious home baked treats. I actually think it is worth the scenic drive (40 minutes from the Gold Coast) just to soak up the retro atmosphere, take time to meet the locals, and appreciate the amazing live music all day.

You can sit on the verandah at The Lounge Lizard Cafe (directly opposite the Old Buttery) and watch the world go by or enjoy a coffee from The Coffee Oasis - a popular stall in the markets. There are plenty of second hall stalls to potter around, as well as plants and hand made crafts/gifts to take home. Overall, The Uki Buttery Bazaar Markets make a fun and colorful weekend adventure or day trip - just don't forget to take your dancing shoes.
