Santa – Niche Markets – Every Saturday & Sunday
If fighting for Santa’s attention in a crowded shopping centre isn’t your thing, Santa is making his way to the Niche Markets for an exclusive Chrissy catch up before the big day. Hold your Akubra! This year he’s bringing the Australian bush to the markets so getting on your best outback dress up is highly advised. Santa will be hanging around every Sat & Sun 10am – 2pm. Bring your family and friends for a free photo with Santa and let him know if you’ve been nice this year.

Summer of Music Festival
Music is the essence of Christmas. The Markets will be holding a Summer of Music festival happening every weekend with local performers bringing the tunes to have you dancing around the market.
