Reading Time: 6 minutes

With only four weeks to Christmas, the season of French Christmas markets in Australia has truly begun! Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra you’re up next! And Adelaide will celebrate Summer rather than Christmas with its first French-style garden party.

Picture yourself strolling through the bustling stalls adorned with twinkling lights, where the air is filled with the scent of warm crepes, spiced mulled wine, and the sweet aroma of freshly baked pastries. Read on to find out about a French market in Australia near you!


The first of the French Christmas markets in Australia have already happened with Newcastle’s first Twilight in Paris, Canberra’s Telopea School La Grande Fête and the French Association of North Sydney’s French market at Killarney Heights Public School already taking place.
