Description of Sponsorship
Caribbean Gardens and Market has been operating since the 1970's, when it started with only a handful of traders selling wares from their car boots and Water ski shows.
What once was a handful of traders has today grown into a bustling undercover market with over 1000 stall sites, one of the largest markets in Victoria, occupying the 5770 metre pavilion.
The market offers a huge variety of goods ranging from clothing, fresh produce, lollies, plants, art and crafts, household goods, tools, prints, shoes, toys, giftware and bric-a-brac.
If computers interest you in any way, then you will love the right wing of our market, which is dedicated entirely to computers and everything associated with them. There are 100's of stalls, so, no matter what you're searching for, you're sure to find it in our computer section.
There are permanent stallholders, but those people wanting to rent a stall on a casual basis can turn up on the day and hire a stall (See stall enquiries icon on LHS).
The Gardens cover an area of approximately 100 acres surrounding the beautiful Lake Caribbean. Throughout the picnic grounds are BBQ's (free wood supplied) and plenty
of picnic tables under the shade of beautiful elm, gum and pine trees.
Young, old, or somewhere in-between we've managed to cater for everyone, whether you'd like to shop, , stroll around the lake, watch the kids on the rides/playground or perhaps just sit back, relax, and soak up the wonderful atmosphere Caribbean Gardens creates. Rides operate every Sunday 11am to 4pm and during school holidays rides also operate on Wednesdays subject to weather conditions). For only $3.00 per ride you can enjoy a Chairlift ride, Train ride or Jungle Cruise. A fun and affordable way to entertain the children.
The Caribbean restaurant and take-away Kiosk caters for snacks, light food or a full meals, and makes a great cappuccino.
If your looking for a relaxing day out or somewhere to entertain the children for the day, Caribbean Gardens has it all.
Caribbean Gardens and Market is situated at the foothills of the Dandenongs in Scoresby, just 25 km from Melbourne. Caribbean Gardens and Market is open every Wednesday and Sunday.
