Autumn Eats Time

Varsity Foreshore Parklands | 26th May 2024

A great turnout for the Varsity Lakes Autumn Eats Time community event by the lake.

 

As the sun went down, the tempo went up on the dancefloor, playground, and in the kitchens of the various food trucks assembled along the parklands for this local family outing.

 

Thanks to councillor Dan Doran for sponsoring and supporting this event.

community markets

A great source of community products and produce are at the markets. Robina and residents from surrounding suburbs are lucky to have a couple to choose from. You can go on the day that suits, or split your shop into 2 and go to both each week.

Wednesdays | 6:30am - 11:30am | 4 Greenwich Ct, Robina

Starting at 6:30am you'll find loads of parking, a variety of vendors, food, coffee, music, and more.

 

Call in on the way to work, after school drop off, or make a special trip and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and great atmosphere while supporting locals.

Sundays | 6am - 11:30am | Robina State High School, 1 Investigator Dr, Robina

Robina Farmers Market has been set up to to provide a space for local farmers and producers to sell their fresh produce directly to the community. Along with fresh fruit and vegetables, there is a selection of stalls selling, specialty foods, crafts, and coffee with live music in the background.

These markets are set to become a permanent Sunday morning feature in Robina, with plenty of parking and potential to expand in the future with regular community support.

A Show produced back in 2014 featuring the Gold Coast Pet Expo which used to be hosted in Varsity Lakes. Wouldn't it be great to see the return of this great event in our community.
