Kallangur Twilight Markets

Markets pop up in many locations.  The Twilight Markets are held in Kallangur Tavern carpark on Saturdays over winter, starting mid afternoon to about 8pm.

Good thinking on someone’s part as winter days can generally have more predictable pleasant weather in South East Queensland, than the summer months.

A good variety of stalls, majority with reasonable pricing, and not too many to become confusing.   Free entry, now that is something I feel is a necessity for markets, most people are looking for a bargain so charging them to enter can be detrimental to the cause.  One general spends more when entry is free, and less when you have to pay to enter.

A happy train driver was operating his wheeled train around the edge of the Markets,  During our time at the markets, there seemed to be a number of smaller patrons with adults in tow, entjoying a ride.

Bric-à-brac, fresh Fruit market and a very good variety of food stalls were among the good selection of stalls on offer.

These candles in martini and champagne glasses were displayed in one of the eyecatching stalls. Very clever work on someone’s part.

Continuing with that cocktail feel, this intriguing stall was full of donuts with injectable flavourings.   As explained by the stall holder donuts become soggy when filling is left inside.  By leaving the filling in a plastic syringe to inject when you are ready to consume this delectable treat, the soggy factor is taken out of the equation.


Over the winter months, if you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon, or feel like calamari, Japanese, or perhaps an indulgentdeep fried mars bar or donut, then stop by the markets to check them out.  Enjoy your choice of meal to accompaniment of  some background live music,  Pleasant in itself as not being too over powering.   A number of tables were in front of the music, however seating appeared to be few and far between.  Perhaps take your own chair if you’d like to stay a while.
