Kid-Friendly Christmas Events At NightQuarter In Helensvale
Please note – due to rent increases the NightQuarter markets will be closed as of February 2019. There are plans to relocate. We will update our information as we learn more.
Christmas is being celebrated in epic proportions at Gold Coast’s much-loved NightQuarter. The creative playground in Helensvale is hosting night markets every Friday and Saturday from Dec 1 until Christmas Eve.
It’s also hosting two massive nights of Christmas-themed holiday entertainment. You’d be mad not to drag the kids along to enjoy the festive spirit and enjoy Santa and carol favourites.
What is the NightQuarter?
Well if you haven’t visited the shipping container city then you simply must this festive season. It features night markets, micro-restaurants, emerging fashion and a unique live music space.
There are more than 120 speciality food purveyors, designers, musicians and craftspeople. Basically it’s a really funky place to eat, drink, be entertained and be merry!

When Are The NightQuarter’s Kid-Friendly Christmas Markets?
They are every Friday and Saturday nights from December 1. There’ll be the opportunity to shop for hand-made goods, one-off decorations and unique Christmas gifts.
If you don’t want the kids out too late, then arrive at 4pm and peruse what’s on offer before all the after-work people arrive. You’ll also have no worries getting a park or something to eat in a hurry!
From Christmas-theme decorations and homewares, to jewellery and hand-poured candles, you’re bound to find that special gift.
The best part of all is that you’ll be buying one-of-a kind gifts and supporting local businesses instead of filling the coffers of large corporations.
