Dayboro Markets

Dayboro Markets are every first Sunday of the month (apart from January) Dayboro wakes up from its Yesteryear sleep. The town buzzes from activity between 8 am and noon. Folks from all over the district come to Dayboro to meet and purchase fresh produce from the markets.

It has been a long time coming, but finally, the Dayboro Markets are on again. The markets, cancelled during the CoVid-19 pandemic hoax  (2020-2022), are back in full swing.

We want you to come to Dayboro, visit the markets, grab a cuppa in one of our coffee shops, and for the sweet tooths, there is Life’s Sweet Dayboro. Life’s Sweet Dayboro has the most extensive range of ice cream in Dayboro. The Dayboro Markets are organised and managed by the Dayboro District Progress Association Inc, which is also listed in the Dayboro Directory

Information

As previously mentioned, the Dayboro Markets have a wide variety of stalls, ranging from local produce to crafts. The markets start at 8 am and finish around noon. That is no reason to leave, and you still can meander through Dayboro, visit the local shops, or sit down for a coffee or lunch.

For example, you can grab fish and chips from the Dayboro Cafe. Please go and have a relaxed sit down in one of our parks, Henry Bradley Park or Tullamore Park. If you bring the bikes, the kids can enjoy the bike trail in Tullamore Park.

Dayboro also has several parts and playgrounds where kids can play, and wear them out, so to speak, before you travel back to the “big smoke.” For example, the Roderick A. Cruice Park, which sits between the Dayboro Swimming pool and the tennis courts. There is also a skate park which is always buzzing with activity.

How to get there

Travelling to Dayboro is a pleasure on its own. The moment you leave Petrie, you are surrounded by a “little bit of outback” before the outback. Dayboro Road leads into the village, and it gently rolls into town. Being a market day, do expect traffic in the town centre. Parking can be tricky in the centre of town, yet there are enough spaces behind the bakery and railway street.

You can also come from Samford, and if you drive down from there, you will be greeted with a change of scenery. You will see the water storage for the district on the right-hand side and pass the spot of the Dayboro Railway Disaster, which led to the closure of the railway line between Ferny Grove and Dayboro.

Lots of Motorbike riders and cyclists use Dayboro as a resting place to grab a coffee or as the place to turn back. The halfway point.

It is best to check the event page on this site, get the travel directions and use your GPS to find the place. You will not be disappointed.

See you there.
