Since Christmas is just around the corner, you may already be contemplating on what to give your loved ones. So how about surprising them with something creative, beautiful, and locally made? This way you don’t just make the people important to you happy, but also the local artists and craftsmen who give their best efforts in producing magnificent items.

If you’ll be heading to Cairns soon for a vacation or a business trip, it’s time to hit two birds with one stone; Because December 13, 2015, Sunday, is the last one day event of The Handmade Expo Market in Cairns.

Happening at the Fred Moule Pavilion of Cairns Showgrounds, the venue will be filled with around 100 remarkable stalls that showcase local crafters, artisans, sewers, bakers, and growers from all over the Cairns Region, along with their crafts and harvests.

Come and get yourself plenty of goodies from this exciting event. The people you’ll give them to will surely love them because of their stunning designs and concepts. In fact, the event is proven to be a success once again, this time when it was voted as Australia’s Best Handmade Market by the Australian Markets and Fairs Magazine.  

With history dating back in 2008 at the Ipswich Showgrounds, The Handmade Expo transferred to Ipswich Turf Club in 2009 and became its home for the next six years. Since then it has been expanding to various parts of Queensland and Western Australia. Today, it has been doing a magnificent job making each visitor satisfied and happy in Ipswich, Morayfield, Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Forest Hill, Toowoomba, and Cairns.

In Cairns alone, its schedules were September 13 and October 11, and another two on November 8 and December 13.

Entrance as well as the parking space is free for all so don’t miss the chance of being part of this event.
