The Queen Victoria Night Market is back and ready to make this summer the most epic one yet!

Enjoy this much-loved Melbourne market full of street food, refreshing cocktails, great shopping and live music every Wednesday night from 23 November 2022 to 15 March 2023.

Every year it gets more and more popular so if you’re going with kids my big tip is to get there early at 5 pm (or even 4:45 pm!) to take advantage of easier parking, shorter lines and more seating.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text el_class=”thon-hot-tips-panel”]HOT Tips:

  • get there as close to 5pm (or even 4:45pm) 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;
  • $14 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; and
  • bring cash as not all vendors accept cards. There are a few ATMs by Therry Street/toilet blocks but with long queues.
