Market twilight zone comes alive

The Waterfront - Caloundra's Boardwalk is set to become a twilight zone for all the family with the staging of special Friday evening markets at Bulcock Beach during December and again in January.

A similar mix of stalls to the popular Sunday Bulcock Street markets will be located along the Esplanade from 4-9pm between Otranto Avenue and Minchinton Street.

Managed by the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the twilight markets will be held on Friday, December 11 and 18 and Friday January 8 and 15. A special twilight market will also be held on New Year's Eve.

Chamber Executive Officer, Steve Gaeth, said the markets have been planned to attract locals and tourists to The Waterfront area to experience the natural beauty of the location while enjoying some relaxing retail therapy. The markets provide the opportunity to browse among a diverse range of art and craft stalls, an abundant choice of high-quality, locally-sourced produce, and gourmet foods all while listening to some great music.

"The Friday twilight market opens up a whole new evening destination to savour during the holiday season with a particular emphasis on creating an entertaining and relaxing family atmosphere," Mr Gaeth said.

"The markets will be a great reason to visit central Caloundra and perhaps stay on and enjoy some of the best waterfront dining facilities anywhere in the region."  

Traders interested in taking part in the market can contact Mr Gaeth on (07) 5492 5977.

Bulcock Beach Esplanade has enjoyed an $8 million makeover that compliments a seaside promenade, parklands, landscaped gardens, stunning resorts and alfresco dining with picturesque views. All this is within walking distance of the Caloundra central business area.

Known as The Waterfront - Caloundra's Boardwalk, the precinct includes nearly a dozen choices to tempt the palate including English-style pub and restaurant The Penefathings Inn, Italian restaurant La Dolce Vita, Hog's Breath Cafe and The Coffee Club Cafe Bar Restaurant. And for popular dining favourites Tides Waterfront Dining, Mooo Char + Bar and Wung Nam Thai Water Palace their scenic outlook is now better than ever.  

Adding to the contemporary flavour is the recently opened $90 million Rumba Beach Resort & Spa, designed to achieve a five star rating. Situated directly opposite the white sands and tranquil waters of Bulcock Beach, Rumba sits in one of the most desirable positions in all of the Sunshine Coast.
