Are Gold Coast night markets family friendly?

Yes! As with any public event, your children are definitely your own responsibility and you need to keep a close eye on them.

That being said, though, you’re in for a real treat. Depending on which market you attend you’ll find:

  • A huge array of street food, international cuisine and old-fashioned family favourites
  • Rides!
  • Face painting!
  • Musical acts and performances!
  • Dancing!
  • Some markets are pet friendly! (Check in advance to avoid a disappointed pooch)
  • Opportunities to socialise, catch up and meet new people! (Particularly appealing to the teenagers in your house)
  • Local colour and flavour
  • A really strong sense of community and good times

Night markets!

There’s something about markets at night that make them extra fun, particularly in the summer months. Enjoy! And who knows – you might even catch the occasional fireworks display!
