Welcome To Rusty’s Markets
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 with over 180 stall holders. It has become renown for its carnival atmosphere, colourful stall holders, sumptuous displays of exotic fruit, vegetables, exotic flowers, bric-a-brac, delicatessens, specialty products & an excellent selection of food & beverage stalls.
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 shoppers & tourists alike.
Rusty’s Market is now an established Cairns tourist icon & certainly worth a visit. When in Cairns why not drop in any Friday to Sunday. We are easily located in the CBD between Grafton & Sheridan Streets, just ask any local.
