Rusty’s Market has, over 30 years, developed into one of the largest, most successful & best known markets in Australia & overseas.

From an insignificant beginning of some 6 stall holders Rusty’s has grown into an enormous three day event every week, with over 180 stall holders. It has become renown for its carnival atmosphere, colourful stall holders, sumptuous displays of tropical fruit, vegetables, exotic flowers, bric-a-brac, delicatessens, specialty products & an excellent selection of food & beverages.
Rusty’s is named after the late Emrys “Rusty” Rees, who developed & expanded the market into the mega event it is today. The new owners, Gilligan’s Backpacker Hotel & Resort, have faithfully carried on the tradition & Rusty’s continues to offer it’s weekly delights to local shoppers & tourists alike.
