Rusty’s Market is one of the most successful and well-known markets in Australia and abroad.

From modest beginnings in 1975 of only half-a-dozen stalls, Rusty’s has grown into a bustling three-day event, renown for its carnival atmosphere and colourful stallholders.

Today, Rusty’s Market is an established Cairns tourist icon, and certainly worth a visit. Drop in any Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. We are located in the CBD between Grafton and Sheridan Streets—just ask any local.

Rusty’s Market is the home of 180 stalls!
