Portside Makers Markets

The annual Portside Makers Market is back again, and we are excited to share the night with you! Featuring local makers and creatives, this artisan market will showcase lots of home-grown talents and offer you a range of products in time for Christmas!

Wedge Street Footpath Twilight Markets

The Port Hedland Visitor Centre will be hosting their Wedge Street Footpath Twilight Markets, with a variety of stalls stretching along Wedge Street. Jewellery, plants, eco-friendly products and more, you’re sure to find something special! But it’s not all about the shopping – keep the kids busy with a Visitor Centre Scavenger Hunt or try your luck with the Lucky Dip or the FREE Christmas raffle! Any mums and dads out there looking for a festive photo opportunity, a Santa’s Grotto will be set up and ready to rock and roll too!

Courthouse Gallery+Studio

Don’t forget to pop in and visit the team at the Courthouse Gallery+Studio! Walk through the space and browse the Store+Stockroom for local and Australian stocked artworks and wears. Stocking new and exciting products all the time, the team can help you find the perfect Christmas gift!

And for the kids, when they aren’t following around their favourite TV animated characters (the roaming mascots) Bingo and Bluey, they can be entertained with FREE facepainting and FREE art and craft activities!!

Get Your Dancing Shoes On!

When you need a break from shopping, we have you covered! There’ll be roller-skating elves, stilt walking jugglers, live music by Vien Russel, Tommy Gun, Baler School Choir and HATCH, with a live surprise performance by Ross Vegas. And to top it all off, a Santa Grotto at the Visitor Centre to really get into the festive spirit! This is a jam-packed event, a must do in the Hedland calendar, and we cannot wait to share the night with you!
