Long weekend at the Byron Hinterland

Byron Bay Markets

If you’re out and about the Byron Bay region this Labour Day long weekend 2018, here’s a few free events to visit:

Saturday 29th – Monday 1st October: Brunswick Nature Sculpture

Brunswick Nature Sculpture Walk is a free community triennial event, created along the foreshore of Brunswick Heads.

40 Nationally recognised artists explore sculpture, site-specific, ephemeral and installation art focusing on themes such as nature, the endangered environment, its fragility and sustainability.

It is the intention of this triennial event to acquire some works permanently into the parks of Brunswick Heads raising awareness of these themes connecting Community through Art and Nature.

Saturday 29th September: Byron Bay Beachside Market

8am – 4pm at Main Beach Foreshore, Byron Bay

Entertainment: Hayley Grace & The Bay Collective Trio, Luke Vassella and Hubcap Stan with music & wood

This market takes place four times a year in early January, Easter, July and late September. The Beachside Markets are a ‘make it, bake it and grow it’ market held on the Byron Bay foreshore east of the Surf Club. This is the perfect location to experience some of the most original products alongside one of the worlds’ most famous beaches.

This market showcases a diverse and exciting collection of high-quality art, sculptures, ceramics, textiles, glass, homewares, fashion, craft, clothing and music which is created by local artisans. The market also offers an array of services from our health and well-being practitioners.

The focus of the Beachside Market is to incorporate authenticity, community and sustainability.  This Beachside Market provides an unparalleled opportunity for local artists, creators and healers to showcase their talents to all attendees. With over 200 stalls stretching over half a kilometre of beachfront at Byron Bay’s Main Beach, this market is the perfect location to experience some of the best and most original products and services found in the Byron Bay area.

Come with your family and friends to experience the vibrant atmosphere, enjoy a coffee, brunch or lunch while you listen to some fabulous live music and browse the stalls.

Sunday 30th Septemeber: Ballina Missingham Farmers Market

Ballina Missingham Farmers Market is on every Sunday. They are the best way to do your weekly shop – buying fresh fruit, vegetables, and other produce directly from the grower.

At Farmers Markets and organic markets, customers can talk to the farmer directly about the produce and farming methods. Some farmers markets are incorporated into weekend markets, but usually there are regular separate week day stalls and stands at various locations throughout the region.

7-11am at the Missingham Bridge, Ballina
