What’s On in Batemans Bay

Batemans Bay Sunday Market

Fortnightly on Sundays

Batemans Bay Sunday Market is held on the first and third Sunday every month (plus additional markets on some Sundays during school holidays and long weekends) beside the sea at the beautiful Corrigan’s Beach Reserve, Batehaven (Batemans Bay).

No weekend on the coast is complete without a wander around these markets on a Sunday morning. With fantastic stalls, great food, plenty of parking and a location next to the all abilities playground and opposite Batehaven shops, the Sunday Market has something for everyone!

Organised by Marine Rescue Batemans Bay (first Sunday) and Rotary Batemans Bay (third Sunday), they regularly have up to 60 stalls selling clothes, food, collectables, plants, hobbies, gifts, antiques, wood products, bric a brac and more.

They have live music from local artists, great coffee and good bargains all in a pleasant location beside the beach.

For more information and for stall bookings please see their website.

See you at the markets!

March 2021

The Red Hot Summer Tour celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 and in true style, organisers have put together an incredible all Australian line-up. ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters and Collectors are reuniting to headline the 2020 tour, bringing with them special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

Reforming for this special anniversary, Hunters and Collectors performances are a rare thing indeed and a huge coup for music fans.
