The Queen Victoria Night Market is celebrating its 20th birthday this year with lively night markets every Wednesday until 11th April 2018.

Every year it gets more and more popular so if you’re going with kids my big tip is to get there early at 5pm to take advantage of easier parking, shorter lines and more seating. If you’re going with a large group consider booking a table online -it’s $10pp for your own private table.

The markets span over two sheds with over 50 street food vendors, art, craft and design stalls plus a weekly calendar of live entertainment.

I take Baby 2.0 for his first night market experience and we sample a three-course meal of soft-shelled crab burger, chicken and lamb skewers and rainbow ice cream while I opt for decadent stuffed Butterlake pancakes with ice cream. Grand total is just under $50 but you can certainly spend and eat less.

The Queen Victoria Night Market are a fun way to break up your weekday routine and it’s an easy place to take the family out as there’s something for everyone in terms of eats.


HOT Tips:

  • get there as close to 5pm as you can as it gets busier and the lines longer. Peak hour is 7pm;
  • if you go early it’s relatively easy to find street parking close to the market at that time if you’re coming by car;
  • $10 parking from 4:30pm-11pm in market car park;
  • take a tram up Elizabeth St for the easiest access via PT;
  • the main market is not open;
  • if you’re going with a large group consider booking a table online -$10pp for your own private table; and
  • bring cash as not all vendors accept cards. There are a few ATMs by Therry Street/toilet blocks but with long queues.
