The Tuncurry Markets

The Tuncurry markets are conducted by Marine Rescue Forster Tuncurry normally on the fourth Saturday of each month. Please check the dates below for any exceptions.

The markets are held in a wonderful harbourside atmosphere at John Wright Park Tuncurry, from 8am to 1pm, and features a BBQ cooked by Marine Rescue members and providing the likes of bacon and egg rolls, steak sandwiches and sausage sandwiches along with tea, coffee and soft drinks.

With a large variety of stalls, this is perhaps the largest market in the Great Lakes area both in area and in the number of stall holders and is certainly a “main event” for the Forster Tuncurry community and tourist visitors.
