The Eveleigh Artisans’ Market is held on the first Sunday of the month from 10am to 3pm, providing a platform for emerging and contemporary independent designers, artists and makers to showcase and sell their wares directly to the public.
The boutique market experience offers people an opportunity to purchase original and highly creative handmade products
directly from the marker, while enjoying the ambience of some of Sydney’s finest heritage over a coffee, breakfast or lunch.
Each month there is a collective of over 75 stallholders, who bring to life this authentic makers market through high creative standards and quality. Each stallholder is selected for their inventive nature and creative pulse that brings a variety of creations to the Artisans' Market from the fields of art, ceramics, sculpture, sustainable design, fashion, jewellery, accessories, home wares, textiles, furniture, children’s designs and much more.
Held in the heritage Blacksmith's Workshop, the venue offers a truly inspirational all weather market to showcase a wide range of creative talent who are spurring on the evolving design, art and maker scene in Australia.
Eagle's View Walk Trail is a 15 kilometre moderate loop walk around John Forrest National Park, Western Australia's oldest national park, with impressive views across the Swan Coastal Plain to distant Perth the track passes through varied vegetation types, including heath lands, open wandoo woodlands and mixed jarrah-marri-wandoo forest. This Top Trail takes walkers away from the picnic areas, initially following Jane Brook down the valley. It then climbs up the valley wall to great views of the city and ocean. The trail then weaves its way up and down valleys, creek lines and hills before heading back to the brook. There are different ecosystems along the way and spring wildflowers are spectacular. Hovea Falls is a pretty place for a picnic lunch when water is flowing. The trail follows Jane Brook back to the main visitor's area. Signs every two kilometres advise how far you have walked and how far to go. The trail can be tackled clockwise or anticlockwise. The walk trail brochure is available from the ranger's office, along with the walker's log book. Walkers must register before they head off and on their return.
