ANZAC Day Market Announcement - Afternoon Markets
This year the ANZAC Day Market will be held from noon to 5pm on Saturday April 25th.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. To allow everyone to participate in the solemn Dawn Service and the Street Parade, the markets have been moved to the afternoon.
The P & C Committee will run a stall at the Markets selling RSL mementos, plus Yungaburra Market T-shirts, Bags and Hats, and all funds received will be donated to our local RSL. We encourage you all to attend the Dawn Service at the Afghanistan Avenue of Honour, take part in the Yungaburra Street Parade, starting at 8am, and then come on over to the ANZAC Day Markets and enjoy our usual Yungaburra hospitality.
The Markets run from 7:30am to 12:30pm. It pays to come early, as some stalls sell out early.
In most months the Yungaburra Market is held on the 4th Saturday of the month. However there are some exceptions, so read on...
December Market Dates
The Christmas Market in December is the largest market of the year. The date is determined by the committee to ensure that it always falls before Christmas Eve, and does not conflict with other Tableland markets.

December Market Date
From January through November the markets fall on the 4th Saturday of the month. Experience has shown that markets held on or after Christmas Eve (Dec 24th) are poorly attended, so the market in December is specially scheduled to avoid holding it after the 23rd.
Moving the market to another Saturday would result in a collision with one of the other nearby Tableland markets scheduled for the first, second and third Saturdays of every month. Consqeuently the following formula is used to determine the date of the December market:
On years when the fourth Saturday in December falls on or after the 24th, the markets are rescheduled to the last Sunday preceeding the 24th.
Sound confusing? To complicate matters, the rules have been changed a few times recently, so the best advice is watch this space.
