Docklands Sunday Market

By Paul Salter, Docklands Chamber of Commerce

Come down to the Docklands Sunday Market on NewQuay Promenade on the second Sunday of each month from 10am to 5pm.

In fact, come down and visit on August 13!

The market transforms a public area into a gathering space for the community. It is where you can find a treasure.

It brings people of different ages, genders, races, ethnicities and socioeconomic statuses together around the experiences of food, shopping, music and conversation.

The stallholders offer arts, crafts and fair-trade items to the public and much more from the talented craftspeople of Melbourne.

The market is infusing energy and creating a vibe that is drawing people to the precinct with a flow on to the restaurants and local businesses.

Thanks council – A big thank you from the locals

What an amazing three nights the Firelight Festival provided to the local residents and visitors to Docklands at the end of June.

The lantern processions, the roving performers and the burning of the three massive sculptures (Man, Sun and Bird) by artist Christian Patton were amazing.

If you missed the fireworks, visit our Facebook page for a glimpse of what you missed. The winter program finishes on August 23, so you may still be able to look in on some of the remaining “Glow” activities.

Did you miss out on the progressive dinners and the opportunity to taste some of Docklands finest food provided by the Berth, Cargo, Bopha Devi, Black Cod, Watermark, Banoi, Saluminsti, Tap831, Wawa Chocolatier and the Atlantic Group?

Why not register for our newsletter and make sure you do not miss the next opportunity.
