Craft Markets of VictoriaThroughout Victoria, country towns host craft markets well worth a visit...
Red Hill Market
Red Hill is the grand dame of Victoria's craft markets. It began on the Red Hill Recreation Reserve in 1975 as a truly community event, where local producers and crafts people bartered their goods with each other. Bartering no longer takes place, but the atmosphere, colour and excitement of those early years remains.
