Calliope Market

Great Sunday morning out and about. The day started with a couple of hot coffees and then out to Calliope Market.

Its a small craft type market selling the usual wood turning stuff, cloths, toys and various food staffs from fish and chips, through hamburgers, ice cream etc. You get the picture. Throw in a few old building and some more stalls selling ‘Tat’ and I think you get the general picture. It’s located in few fields outside of Calliope which in itself is a small place 35 kilometres inland from Gladstone with little special on offer. The market is built up around and in an historical village. That’s an imported collection of building including homesteads, old settlers homes, a lodge and even a jail. Add in an old railway station, trains and carriages and it does take on a sort of old world charm all of its own. It certainly attracts some interesting looking characters.
