Avoca Beachside Markets

Avoca Beachside Markets

Disclaimer: I may receive a small commission from some of the links on this page. 

Avoca Beachside Markets are held at Heazlett Park in Avoca Beach every 4th Sunday of the month.

Do not miss one of the Central Coast's best markets! 

Relax by the lakeside, enjoy live music by local artists and browse the 120+ stalls.

You’ll find stylish new and upcycled items, artisan products and gourmet food. It’s a lovely spot to spend a few hours or even a whole day. 

The products you’ll find at this market are usually of great quality. Items are often locally-sourced and handmade. They come with a higher price tag, but it’s completely worth it.

Markets

Avoca Beachside Markets is a great place to take the kids. There are art and craft activities, face painting, a small playground, an oval to kick the ball and more.

The markets are also dog-friendly. Many people take their dogs. There’s an off-leash area on the beach where you can let your dog run free before or after your visit.

Avoca Beachside Markets are very popular and they always attract a crowd. I like going in winter, but in summer you have to not mind the crowds. But it's a great place where the community gets together...

Markets

Spend a few hours at Avoca Beach after you visit the stalls. In summer you can cool down in the lake or ocean. If you'd like a swim, the patrolled section of the beach and the rock pool are a 10-minute walk away.

You can also hire pedal boats, kayaks and stand up paddleboards at the lake. Aquafun is right beside the markets on the shore of Avoca Lake. 

You can also watch a movie at Avoca Beach Theatre.

Where to Park

The markets get busy so parking is hard to find. Best options are:

  • Get there as early as possible and park near the markets.
  • Park on the street a bit further away if you don't mind walking. You'll find spots along The Round Drive.
  • Park at Avoca Beach Hotel and take a free shuttle bus to Heazlett Park – they run every 15 minutes from 9 am (update: currently not running due to COVID).
