Recyclerama has grown out of a community’s wish to celebrate and encourage recycling and waste reduction, with a love of all things vintage and antique providing inspiration. It has become one of the most loved antique markets in Queensland, and since it only takes place a couple of times in the year it is also one of the most highly anticipated. Both indoor and outdoor spaces are filled with over 100 vendors, and areas are divided and organized so that visitors can easily navigate the huge space. It is a wonderful market, that should not be missed!

Avid collectors and antique enthusiasts should make the main and exhibition pavilions at Recyclerama their first port of call. So many vendors are fit into this space, and each one has fantastic wares to browse through. There are vintage collectible cars, clothing, model planes, books, vintage jewelry, paintings, antique china, textiles and rugs, glassware and a whole load of ornaments and other curios.

Through the outdoor space at Recyclerama is a mixture of those that have obviously just emptied out their house and those that have a bit more of a collection for sale, and you never know what further treasures may be lurking here! Therefore, it is definitely worth having a good look through all the stalls at this market. If shoppers are searching for specific collectibles, it is also worth arriving when the market opens.

As well as the amazing shopping opportunities at Recyclerama, there are also fantastic food stalls dotted through the market, so an energizing coffee is never far away. The atmosphere here is incredibly welcoming and friendly, and with buskers around to provide entertainment there is something here for all the family. Local charities are supported by this event too, which adds to the community vibe here and gives shoppers another excuse to spend some cash – it is for a good cause after all.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
